About This Wine:
Okay, perhaps “harrowing” is overstating it. But among those who don’t know wine, “Zinfandel” (a wonderfully fruitful, spicy red wine) could be mistaken for “White Zinfandel” (an ultra-sweet blush-style wine). It happens a lot.
Even Zinfandel’s heritage has caused confusion. It was once was referred to as California’s “mystery grape” because its origins were unknown. But that changed in 2002 when DNA fingerprinting confirmed that Italy’s Primitivo and Croatia’s ancient Crljenak Kastelanski are genetically identical to the Zinfandel grape. Differences in vine vigor and cluster size, however, distinguish Zinfandel from the Italian and Croatian grapes.
But there’s no identify crisis with the 2018 Old School Lane Cellars Zinfandel, a jammy and fresh wine made from grapes grown in California’s Central Coast region. With its unique flavor profile and food-friendly personality, it’s a (red) wine you can pour with confidence.
