    ZINFANDEL - Zinfandel is widely grown in California, and the primary flavours of Zinfandel are blueberry, black pepper, cherry, plum and liquorice. The wines often explode with candied fruitiness followed by spice and often a tobacco-like smoky finish.

  • Reviews

    "Great example of a Zinfandel from California's iconic Sonoma County. The flavours are bold and fruity with some lovely complex elements."

  • Region

    CALIFORNIA, USA - California is the USA’s largest wine region, globally renowned for producing bold and fruity wines. Diverse climate and topography presents a vast choice of terroir across three principal sub-regions: North Coast (containing the iconic Nappa and Sonoma Valleys), Central Coast and Inland Valleys. The cooler regions closer to the coast suit Pinot Noir and Chardonnay while the hotter inland areas produce very fine Cabernet Sauvignon. A wide range of traditional European vines also thrive alongside the famous Zinfandel.
