Winemaker's Notes

The Zinfandel grapes for this vintage were harvested in mid-September at perfect physiological maturity. Both the growing and bloom seasons were long, as was the harvest. So, the result was another signature Grgich Hills Zinfandel - a beautifully balanced wine with medium body, plenty of soft tannins, good acidity, and rich, complex flavors and loads of berries.

Tasting our 2000 Zinfandel is a feast for the senses. It has a beautiful, deep purple color and delightful aromas of ripe blackberries, plums, currants, and a touch of raspberries. Rich and well-balanced with a deep and lasting finish, it fills your mouth and palate with a lively medley of bursting berry flavors with delicate hints of toasty oak and cedar aromas from the barrels.

We're passionate about Zinfandel and recommend serving it with barbecued dishes, white meats, game and pastas.
