The Grgich Hills Zinfandel, which normally carries a "Sonoma County" appellation, is a little different this year. Due to the acquisition of some prime Napa Valley Zinfandel grapes from the Calistoga region, we were able to produce a 50/50 blend of two counties. Not only is it a different appellation, but you will also notice a change in the label.
A late harvest in 1998 produced highly-extracted wines with concentrated, yet elegant, fruit flavors. These conditions resulted in an enticing Zinfandel with great balance and depth. All of the desired elements are there in perfect harmony; delicious, clean, fruity flavors of red currants and ripe berries, a touch of oak and a long, warm, comforting finish. Try this one with your favorite pasta dish.
