Winemaker's Notes:

Produced from thirty year old, head trained vines, the Sauret Zinfandel is a powerful style of Zinfandel loaded with rich, jammy blackberry and cassis with a pinch of spice, leather and oak that keeps everything in balance.

Food Pairings: When it comes to Zinfandel, we like to say "If you flame it, this wine will tame it"! It is a perfect accompaniment for barbecues, roasts, grilled sausages and game meats. Hearty stews also work great with this wine.

About Eberle Winery:

Gary Eberle has been producing wines since 1973 and is considered a "founder father" of the Paso Robles appellation. Eberle's desire to produce small-production premium wines led him to establish his own winery and in the spring of 1984, the Eberle Winery opened its doors to the public, selling a 1979 Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon. Along with his passion for Cabernet Sauvignon, Eberle produced one of the first 100% varietal Syrahs in California and has taken advantage of the region's Zinfandel plantings. Though still a boutique-sized winery, Eberle's portfolio includes Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sryah and Zinfandel. All of the wines are vineyards designated in an effort to truly express the regional terrior and personality of the vineyards in the Paso Robles appellation.

In 1994, Eberle was seeking additional space for the red wine program and decided to go underground, where today 16,000 square feet of underground caves wind themselves below the winery.
