Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Edizione Pennino Zinfandel has a concentrated nose of fresh boysenberry and raspberry fruit along with vanillin and mocha notes mingling with nuances of clove and nutmeg spice. The rich berry fruit flavors are generously followed into the mouth and continue into the finish with vanillin and spice notes. The texture is juicy and round with silky soft tannins providing both structure and a rich creaminess that lingers – enticing yet another taste.

Blend: 91% Zinfandel, 7% Petite Sirah, 2% Primitivo

About Inglenook:

In 1879, Finnish explorer and adventurer Gustave Niebaum searched the Napa Valley with the goal of establishing a wine estate to rival the finest chateau of France. For decades his wines won acclaim and remain some of the most admired in American wine history's classic period. By the mid-1960's, his property was divided, and estate-wine production ceased.

A decade later, Francis Ford Coppola purchased 1,500 acres of this historic property and revived Captain Niebaum's fine winemaking tradition. In 1995, Niebaum-Coppola acquired the remainder of the property and restored the Inglenook Estate to its original dimensions.
