Winemaker's Notes

Sausal Family Zinfandel is a classic Alexander Valley Zinfandel. Aromas of bright, red fruit and cherry are predominant, but followed with a touch of caramel. Ruby in color, medium body, nice acid and soft tannins round out this delicious Zinfandel.

This wine can be aged four to six years from its release date. We recommend you pair this wine with a creamy cheese pasta alfredo or stroganoff. This wine will also lend itself beautifully to a heavy cheeses like a blue, or a mushroom covered fillet.

Critical Acclaim

"Just beautiful, showing Alexander Valley Zin at its best. Dry and full-bodied, it’s enormously flavorful in spicy wild berries, with a cherry liqueur smoothness. But it’s not high in alcohol, and is throughly balanced and elegant."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
