Sonoma County is home to some of the best Zinfandel vineyards in California. In the winery, traditional winemaking techniques such as open-top fermentation and gentle extraction yield a deeply colored, fruit forward Zinfandel. Simi Zin is blended with Petite Sirah to enhance color, bring out the mid palate and extend the finish. It is delicious with barbecued meats, pasta with red sauces, aged cheese and spicy gumbo.
