Zinfandel is the California classic. Although it really is an eastern European varietal, it’s easy to see why Californians call Zin their own. It was a primary source of wine for the Catholic missionaries, and was quickly planted all over California. The Zins from our Estate have a unique aroma and taste profile, thanks to many terroir details including soil composition, micro climate and vine aspect. . Look for jam, black pepper, cherry, plum, boysenberry, and licorice. The taste explodes with candied fruitiness followed by spice and a tobacco-like smoky finish. Pair with spiced BBQ, or lighter meats like quail, turkey, pork or veal. For vegetarians, think of roasted tomatoes, red peppers and caramelize onions. Fruit is Estate grown.
