    Winemaker Notes

    Produced from thirty year old, head trained vines, the Sauret Zinfandel is a powerful style of Zinfandel loaded with rich, jammy blackberry and cassis with a pinch of spice, leather and oak that keeps everything in balance.

    Food Pairings: When it comes to Zinfandel, we like to say, "If you flame it, this wine will tame it"! It is a perfect accompaniment for barbecues, roasts, grilled sausages and game meats. Hearty stews also work great with this wine.

    Eberle Winery, Central Coast, California
    Image of winery
    Gary Eberle has been producing wines since 1973 and is considered a "founder father" of the Paso Robles appellation. Eberle's desire to produce small-production premium wines led him to establish his own winery and in the spring of 1984, the Eberle Winery opened its doors to the public, selling a 1979 Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon. Along with his passion for Cabernet Sauvignon, Eberle produced one of the first 100% varietal Syrahs in California and has taken advantage of the region's Zinfandel plantings. Though still a boutique-sized winery, Eberle's portfolio includes Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sryah and Zinfandel. All of the wines are vineyards designated in an effort to truly express the regional terrior and personality of the vineyards in the Paso Robles appellation.

    In 1994, Eberle was seeking additional space for the red wine program and decided to go underground, where today 16,000 square feet of underground caves wind themselves below the winery.

    Central Coast

    View all wine

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    Zinfandel

    View all wine

    Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel is often thought of as California’s flagship grape. And it fact it owns this title by having the ability to adapt to the states’ many microclimates and landscapes, producing unique expressions of the grape throughout. Zinfandel thrives in California’s Central Coast, as well throughout Sonoma County, parts of Napa County, the Sierra Foothills, Lodi and Paso Robles.

    Zinfandel was born in Croatia and later made its way to southern Italy where it became known as Primitivo. The astute imperial nursery of Vienna collected specimen of the vine and acted as the source of its importation to New England by George Gibbs, probably in 1829. Eventually, making its way to California around the Gold Rush of 1849, Zinfandel found its new home, parading the true American spirit.

    In the Glass

    Zinfandel commonly expresses powerful notes of dark plum, blackberry, sweet spice, dark chocolate and licorice. Very ripe examples may express a hint of dried fruit like raisin, fig or prune. But Zinfandel grown in cooler, coastal zones often expresses red fruit, black pepper and fresh herbal characteristics of juniper and menthol.

    Perfect Pairings

    Zinfandel is a powerfully flavored wine, mingling happily with bold food like brisket, lamb shanks, pork ribs or anything barbecued. More delicate Zins work with pork, lamb curry and even Ceasar Salad or Salad Nicoise.

    Sommelier Secret

    Thanks to its popularity both for home winemaking and as communion wine, many Zinfandel vines were able to survive prohibition, leading to the abundance of "old vine" Zinfandels. These low-yielding, ancient vines tend to produce wine that is deeply concentrated, delicately perfumed and decidedly complex.
