Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant black-blue, saturated, and viscous, the 2007 Thomann Station unloads a boxcar of ripe black currant and blueberry fruit, minerals, toast, and violets with subtle herb, pepper, and licorice notes.

Not a wine for the dainty palate, this is a wine to savor with well marbled beef, braised or grilled lamb, aged cheeses, and dark chocolate.

My Notes:

About Robert Biale Vineyards:

The Biale Zinfandel tradition began in the 1930's when Pietro Biale, an immigrant from Genoa, began planting Zinfandel (a variety we now know is from Croatia and a favorite of pioneer California winemakers) on his farm in the town of Napa in 1937.

Since that first commercial vintage in 1991 the winery has created a series of a dozen small-vineyard Zinfandels from other historic family vineyards in Napa and Sonoma and, under the direction of new winemaker Steve Hall, has become regarded by collectors, "Zin geeks", authors, wine writers, and sommeliers as among the very finest and most sought after producers of Zinfandel - being dubbed in 2010 by Wine Spectator as Zinfandel Grand Masters. The experts concur: Biale, along with a few select producers, has elevated California Zinfandel to that of internationally recognized status.
