About Zinfandel

California's own grape variety. Red Zinfandel (not to be confused with "white" Zinfandel) can produce full-bodied wines packed with ripe berry fruit and smooth tannins. Flavors of blackberries and spicy pepper.

    I think the label speaks more to the adolescent judgement and humor of this winery's management than to the wine itself.

    The taste was perfect, not too sweet, but light, and delicious. Perfect without a side dish.

    I liked the soft fruitness, it was light without being overly sweet.
