Winemaker Notes

Pale straw with gold reflections. Delicate aromas of citrus and melon mingled with subtle herbal and grassy notes. Crispy and juicy, this wine is well balanced and mouth fill, with refreshing citrus fruit flavors, a racy acidity, and lingering finish.

Delicious with seafood dishes, sushi, sashimi, oysters, leafy green salads, pasta salads, pork chops and grilled vegetables and soft cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Greenish-straw. Precise, spice-accented nose of green apple, quince and white flowers, combined with an herbal aspect. Tactile and fine-grained, marked by zesty acidity giving definition to the dry flavors of lime, lemongrass and candied ginger. Fleshes out toward the back, finishing quite suave, with lingering notes of melon and lemon curd.

Unapologetically powerful, heady, and fruit-forward...

View More

Unapologetically powerful, heady, and fruit-forward, Zinfandel is often thought of as a truly Californian grape, though in fact it is anything but. This variety has followed an intriguing trajectory to reach its adoptive home, beginning, surprisingly, in Croatia. Originally known as Tribidrag, it first made its way to southern Italy where it became known as Primitivo. From there it eventually migrated to what is now unarguably its most successful outpost, in California, and has thrived throughout the state. Of course, this is also the grape of White Zinfandel, a sweet pink wine that enjoyed great popularity in the 1980s and 90s. Though White Zin still has a significant following, today the variety is increasingly associated with the red version.

In the Glass

Zinfandel commonly features a bold, plush texture and notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet spice, black pepper, dark chocolate, leather, and licorice, and can often be described as “jammy” and a little bit sweet. Very ripe examples may express a hint of dried fruit like raisin, fig, or prune. Despite its significant alcohol and weight, Zinfandel has very smooth, gentle tannins.

Perfect Pairings

Zinfandel is a powerfully flavored wine, mingling happily with bold food like brisket, lamb shanks, pork ribs, or anything barbecued. If care is taken with regards to alcohol levels, Zinfandel’s hint of sweetness can work well with milder Indian-spiced dishes like lamb curry.

Sommelier Secret

Thanks to its popularity both for home winemaking and as communion wine, many Zinfandel vines were able to survive prohibition, leading to the abundance of "old vine" Zinfandels. These low-yielding vines tend to produce wine that is concentrated, complex, and elegant.
