Wine Enthusiast
This big but plush wine is deep in color, rich in blackberry aromas and saturated with ripe jammy flavors that spread across the palate and cling to the sides of the mouth. It is full bodied, very concentrated and has a ripeness that leaves a fruity sensation on the finish.

Zinfandelic, Mendocino, California

Zinfandel has always been the quintessential California wine. Taking on the characteristics of the regions where it’s grown, the flavor of a California Zin is like the flavor of California itself. It’s free love in a bottle, with a vibe all its own - at times mellow, others bold or even spicy. But it’s always, dare we say, groovy

With a label inspired by the psychedelic rock posters of the 1960s, Zinfandelic captures the spirit of Zinfandel, California’s quintessential wine. Zinfandelic's labels are a reflection of the posters that captured that era - Flower Power, Haight-Ashbury and Psychedelic Rock. Just as the hippy cultural movement was making its way out of California and into the rest of the world, so too was Zinfandel wine. While you might not be able to go back in time to the Summer of Love, enjoy California through a wine that captures the spirit of a memorable generation.

Zinfandelic is a collection of Zinfandel wines from seasoned wine veteran Daniel LeFrancois. Each wine is an expression of the soil and climate from where it was sourced. The high altitude old vines of the Sierra Foothills are expressed through an earthier wine with bramble vine notes. Lodi, the "Zin Capitol of the World," features lush fruit flavors. While Mendocino's coastal influence delivers a robust, full-bodied Zin.

Mendocino

View all wine

A large and diverse appellation within California’s North Coast AVA, Mendocino is home to several smaller sub-regions—most notably the Anderson Valley. This scenic region, with rolling hills covered in redwood forests as well as vineyards, is one of the world’s top producers of certified organically-grown grapes. Due to wide geographical and climatic variation, a vast array of wine styles can be found here.

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 Valley, 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 specimens of the vine and acted as the source of its journey to New England, carried by George Gibbs circa 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.
