Winemaker's Notes:

Biker's legendary blackberry aromas mix with cherry, plums, menthol, white pepper and a touch of meaty black olives and oregano. A touch of cedar box from the oak aging adds to the complexity. The Bad Boy of Zin delivers again with flavors of plums, cherries and boysenberries with a smoky char to balance the fruit. A sweet fruit entry digs deep on berry flavors and finishes smooth and bold with a long, long lingering finish. A massive in-your-face Zin, taking no prisoners. Biker rocks!

Pair this audacious Zinfandel with lasagna, meat lovers' pizza, rotisserie chicken, grilled leg of lamb or smoked short ribs.

About Four Vines:

In 1994 Four Vines Winery kicked into gear featuring eclectic, appellation-specific Zins, and one kick-ass no-oak "Naked" Chardonnay. They named their Zins Biker, The Sophisticate and Maverick. Rich, succulent, fruit-generous wines that pair incredibly well with food. The winery relocated to Paso Robles where they began experimenting with Rhone varietals; bigger, headier wines that are positively explosive in flavor and form. No matter the wine, Four Vines has always brought a refreshing, irreverent attitude to the industry. Today, the winery sources fruit from all over the state of California and crushes mainly on the Central Coast and in Sonoma County. This allows grapes to arrive at their peak of cool morning temperatures to the crush pad. It all starts in the vineyard…don't let anyone tell you anything else. In late 2010, Derek Benham acquired Four Vines from its founders and moved the winery operations back up north to Sonoma County where it originally started. Four Vines is now in a position to reach its full potential as a category leader in Unoaked Chardonnay and Zinfandel. The story continues...
