As always, the California Zinfandel is both challenging and rewarding to produce. Severe selection criteria and master blending are evident in the final product, which showcases a wide array of dark berry flavors—especially black cherry and strawberry. Firm, supple tannins are complemented by nice spice notes and a lasting vanilla finish, both derived from oak aging.
With its smooth structure and rich, berry flavors, the California Zinfandel pairs best with bold-flavored foods such as penne putanesca, grilled steak or chili con carne.
Earthy & Spicy
A little heavy for me, but an ok wine.
