Zinfandel is often thought of as an American grape, likely because over 50% of the world’s Zinfandel is grown in California, but in the 1990s it was discovered to be a genetic match to the Croatian grapes Crljenak Kaštelanski and Tribidrag. First brought to California in the 1850s during the Gold Rush, it is now the fourth most widely planted grape in California. Zinfandel is known for its small, dark-skinned berries that offer a high skin-to-juice ratio, which produces intense and concentrated flavors. Our 2018 Zinfandel offers ripe juicy notes of blackberry, plum and black cherry, with hints of cardamom and allspice. Its smooth, medium body is complemented by integrated tannins that lead into a lingering finish of spice, mocha and sweet oak.
