Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Edizione Pennino Zinfandel is dark and lush, with jammy extraction and profuse aromas of pomegranate, plums, chocolate and spice. Bright, juicy flavors of blackberries and cherries are accented by hints of white pepper and nutmeg, a note of mocha and vanilla nuances, which are derived from the oak.

Blend: 92% Zinfandel, 6% Petite Sirah and 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.
