Pepper and spice and everything nice! Raisiny, this Mendocino County Zinfandel is a juicy mouthful of raspberry, black cherry and apricot flavors spiced with cracked peppercorns and dried red chilies.
From head-trained, dry-farmed vines in Dry Creek Valley, this old-vine Zinfandel has intense deep blackberry aromas and an extraordinary concentration of ripe flavors accented with aromatic spice and toasty oak. The dark fruit flavors are persistent, enveloped in a velvety texture.
25-acre Black-Sears Vineyard sits atop the Vaca Range on the eastern side of the Napa Valley and at the northernmost boundary of the Howell Mountain sub-appellation of Napa.
This old-vine Zinfandel has intense deep blackberry aromas and the most extraordinary concentrated ripe fruit flavors, aromatics & toasted oak.
The 2005 Quaglia is a briary and brambly Zinfandel, similar in style to the spicy, peppery Howell Mountain Zins, but distinctively minty, with eucalyptus and licorice in the forefront, black raspberry in the middle and sweet oak in the finish.
This spectacular Zin is an eye-opener. Grown in the fertile Lodi area where Zinfandel has a long history, this is vibrant and delicious, with ripe blueberry and sweet spice. Easy to drink, this one’s already a winner.
This high-elevation, 82-acre vineyard with sweeping views of the Ukiah Valley, sells to only a handful of small, respected wineries, like Navarro, Rosenblum, Sean Thackrey and V. Sattui.
