    Winemaker Notes

    Fasten your seat belts. This wine is going to take your senses for a ride. Big, bold aromas of rich black fruit and mocha mingle with hints of spice and soft vanilla. A core of intense, dark plum and cocoa rock the palate of this daring Zinfandel, while balanced acidity and lingering tannins add complexity, concentration and depth to the finish. Don't be bashful with your pairings. Be Brazin!

    Serve with slow roasted bone-in country pork ribs, grilled chili-rubbed flank steak, or pasta with Italian sausage and black olives.

    Brazin, , California
    Brazin
    Brazin is where old and new worlds collide. Lodi, one of the oldest California wine growing regions, is now home to some of the newest wine making technology. The result is a Zinfandel that is so bold, so intense, that it is dangerously good.

    (B)Old Vine Zin or Dangerously Good

    By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza is divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley—two sources of some of the country’s finest wines.

    For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec, originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s. Here it found success and renown it never could have achieved in its homeland due to its struggle to ripen fully in finicky climates. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and often blended with one another. The best white wines are made from Chardonnay, and there are excellent examples to be found as well from Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc, and Sémillon.

    Other Red Blends

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
