Our first Zinfandel was bottled from the Jack London
Vineyard in 1988. This vineyard is long recognized for its superior red wines. Located on Sonoma Mountain with a southeasterly exposure, the climatic conditions and long, cool growing season of this viticultural area create complexity and balance in the fruit. The influence of the vineyard's red volcanic soil and the fruity characteristics
of the grapes combine to produce an excellent, very
Fruit aromas of blueberry and blackberry combine with interesting spicy notes of cumin and pepper. Delicate well-structured tannins and a hint of vanilla from oak aging give way to a lingering finish.
The wild berry and spice flavors of this rich and elegant Zinfandel are a perfect complement to tomato sauce dishes, grilled fish and steak, and rich chocolate desserts.
"A beautiful Zinfandel, lusty and smooth, that takes the variety's rustic, wild berry, tobacco, anise, herb and pepper flavors and makes them as elegant as Zinfandel gets. Strong, grippy tannins call for a salty, pettpery flank steak. "
