RATINGS

90Wine Enthusiast

Graham cracker and vanilla wafer aromas entice on the nose. This is a ripe, dense wine which boasts a sinewy backdrop of leather among a broad expanse of rich fruit flavors. A cinnamon note lingers on the finish

PRODUCER

Gallo

Gallo Family Vineyards is an off-shoot of E & J Gallo Winery, which is one of California’s historic wine producers. Brothers Ernest and Julio Gallo were selling grapes from the family vineyards when prohibition ended, and in 1933 they decided to start making wine. They taught themselves winemaking from library books and were soon selling large amounts of bulk wines. By the 1990s E & J Gallo had 25% of the American wine market and today it has become a major exporter of American wines. E & J Gallo makes, markets and distributes wine under more than 60 labels, including Andre sparkling wine, Carlo Rossi and Barefoot Wines. However in 1977 the family also decided to make premium wines, and the Gallo Family Vineyards label produces a large portfolio of red, white and rose wines.

TYPE

Red Wine, Zinfandel

Zinfandel is a black-skinned grape, but 85% of the wine produced is made into a rosy “White Zinfandel.” Red Zin is far more complex and bold, while still being light-bodied. It grows in popularity as winemakers continue to experiment with new styles and blends.
