Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

With a label inspired by the psychedelic rock posters of the 1960s, Zinfandelic captures the spirit of Zinfandel, California's quintessential wine. The organically farmed old vine vineyards are located in Amador County, a region renowned for being home to some of the oldest Zinfandel vines in the world.

The high altitude vineyards and sandy clay loam soils yield a bold Old Vine Zinfandel, with rich, bright raspberry and black cherry fruit complemented by hints of earth and spice that add to its complexity. The fresh fruit characteristics are balanced by lively acidity, hallmarks of Amador County.

Zinfandelic's Amador County Old Vine Zinfandel wine makes an excellent food pairing choice for anything hot off the grill, such as grilled tri-tip steak. Or enjoy with barbeque ribs, meaty pasta dishes or pizza.

Packed with ripe blackberry and raspberry flavors, but not too jammy. Smooth, with a hint of spice. Very tasty with pasta or pizza. I love bringing this Zin to dinner parties. Everyone loves the label!
