Winemaker's Notes

Dark purple in color. Aromas of red fruits like raspberry and plum with a hint of spice. Mouthfilling with good entrance and midpalate, smooth tannins and a long finish.

The Federalist Zinfandel has robust fruit with bright berry fruit character, and its lively acidity allows it to partner well with a wide variety of foods.
