Special Zinfandel Tasting Set For Thursday, July 22, At Corks

Rich, intense and multi-dimensional Zinfandel are in store at Corks Wine and Liquor, 27250 Crossroads Pkwy., Rossford – (419) 872-6800, during a special tasting of Klinker Brick wines, Lodi, California, 6:00 to 9:00 PM Thursday, July 22.

Special guest will be Farrah Felten, daughter of Steve and Lori Felten, founders of the estate. She'll be pouring the Lodi Farrah Syrah, Lodi Old Vine Zin, and the Old Ghost Zin.

A treat will be the Old Ghost Zin, produced from “Old Vines.” Old Vines, those at least 50 years old, yield more intense sugars, color and concentration of flavors, producing wines that are generally better balanced with more body and structure. Old Ghost comes from a 96-year-old vineyard.

If you're curious about the name, Klinker Bricks are highly prized bricks that grace many of the historical buildings in Lodi. Chosen by Craftsmen architects in the 1920’s for their distinctive qualities, including unique shapes and dark, rich color, these bricks are “heavier” than regular bricks. “Klinker” refers to the sound that they would make when banged together, because of their increased weight. Rich, deep color, enormous density, unique and distinctive are the same qualities found in their old vine Zinfandel.

Klinker Brick Winery wines will be featured at the Corks tasting on Friday as well, but without the special guests.
