Sierra Foothills, California - Bronze Medal 2022 Sunset International Wine Competition
A touch of extra bottle age makes for a complex wine that bursts with all the classic Zinfandel flavors. Sun-sweet black cherries, smoked plum, and boysenberry pie flavors are contrasted by cola, tootsie roll, and dark chocolate. Elegant oak notes of baking spice and vanilla show strong on the finish of this rich, mouth-filling wine.
Zinfandel is a food-friendly and fun wine, so don’t be afraid to see if it pairs with whatever you’re eating tonight! Zinfandel can handle a bit of spice if you’re interested in trying more unusual dishes like Indian Spiced Ribs or Harissa-crusted pork roast. In both dishes, the sweetness of the meat and the savory spice mixes pair beautifully with this Zinfandel. Grilled steak, ribs with bbq sauce, pasta with red sauce, or a rich vegetarian pasta are all good choices.
