Ironstone 2016 Zinfandel “Old Vine, Lodi” ($12)

This excellent buy for a Fourth of July gathering is strong across the board and features rich fruit, tannins and fine complexity carrying throughout an extended finish. Serve with burgers, barbecue and Latin- and Italian-inspired dishes.

Ask your favorite store to order this wine for you. Prices may vary.
