Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Edizione Pennino Zinfandel is dark, sold and dense, possessing a mouth filling intensity and complexity. Aromas of raspberries, white pepper and truffle are followed by seductive flavors of blueberries, blackberries, briar and spice. The wine bears a classic structure with a harmonious balance of tannin and fruit. Well suited for a wide range of meats, poultry and cheese.

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.
