True to our tradition, our 2006 Zinfandel is a field blend that relies on
the vitality of zinfandel and the depth of petite sirah for its trademark
character. Intense aromas of wild berry and fresh fruit are punctuated
by spices that include clove, cinnamon, and white pepper. Lush layers of
cherry and boysenberry fill the palate, while the nuances of oak and earth
never overwhelm. The wine's bright acid and soft tannins offer a plush,
lingering finish. Rich yet quaffable; our 2006 Zinfandel is a wine that both
complements a meal and is delicious on its own.
One of California’s oldest varietals, this grape actually hails from Croatia. Red Zinfandel makes rich dark wines that are high in alcohol and medium to high in tannin. The can have a blackberry or raspberry aroma, a spicy character and even a jammy flavor. Some Zinfandels are relatively light-bodied and meant to be enjoyed young, while others benefit from aging.
