...terrific, with beautiful purity and elegance as well as ample Zinfandel charm and spice. Medium-bodied, soft, and supple, with lots of plum and red berry fruits and spicy, cedar, and subtle cigar wrapper nuances...

93The Wine Advocate

...plush red and blue fruit on the nose, with loads of floral perfume. Medium-bodied, the palate explodes with intense, perfumed fruits and a grainy, fresh frame. The long finish is loaded with bright, spicy accents.

92Wine Spectator

Brimming with plump and multilayered berry patch, licorice and smoked pepper flavors, this wine captures the essence of Sonoma County Zin.


United States, California, Sonoma County

Sonoma County is not an AVA, but it is a commonly used informal designation for wines made outside of more specific AVAs within Sonoma, which is a large wine producing region just west of Napa Valley. Though Sonoma is often overshadowed by its glamorous neighbor Napa Valley, it has a long history of wine production. The area specialized in jug wine until the mid-20th century, when Sonoma producers took a cue from Napa and started improving quality. Unlike Napa, where Cabernet Sauvignon is king, Sonoma specialized in Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, though excellent Cabs are produced too. There are at present 16 AVAs within Sonoma County, and, like much of the West Coast of the United States, new AVAs are created in Sonoma County with regularity. Some Sonoma appellations, such as the Russian River Valley, are renowned for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.


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.
