Plungerhead wines start in the heart of Lodi, California, which has grown in popularity
over recent years for crafting world class wines. Our goal is to make wines reflective
of Lodi’s true character with rich flavors that are bold and reflective of its unique soil
and Mediterranean climate.
We use three primary vineyards for our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourcing in
Lodi; Alabama Ranch Vineyard, Mettler Family Vineyards, and Stama Vineyards. Both
Alabama Ranch and Mettler Family Cabernet are in Borden Ranch sub appellation, while Stama Vineyards is in the Clement Hills sub appellations of Lodi.
The Borden Ranch sub appellation is known for having well drained, deep red soil and
produces well-structured and concentrated red wines. Clement Hills sub appellation,
known for its rolling hills at the base of the Sierra Foothills, has a warmer and wetter
climate known to produce award winning red varietals. The balance of the blend is a
collection of red varietals including Petite Sirah, Zinfandel from Lodi, and Tempranillo
from Clarksburg. All three varietals add individual nuance flavor, texture, and complexity to the wine.
A deep purple in color, this wine has alluring aromatic notes of blackberry, leather,
cinnamon and toasted cedar with hints of white pepper. The first sip shows juicy flavorsof dark ripe cherry, and raspberry compote. The mouthfeel is silky, with a lengthy and flavorful finish with notes of plum, vanilla and toasted almonds.
