Edmeades Zinfandel 2014, Mendocino
Offering plenty of Zinny character, it’s dry and brisk in mouth-cleansing acidity, with soft tannins and rich flavors of dusty baking spices, blackberry purée, cherry compote, cola, shaved dark chocolate, red licorice and a savory coating of toasted cedar wood. The addition of a small percentage of Petite Sirah (10%) and Syrah (4%) contributes complexity. A great accompaniment to barbecue, game, roasted chicken, stews and lasagna.

Rabble Zinfandel 2016$25.00Add to cart
The Rabble Zinfandel 2016 comes from the Mossfire Ranch in Paso Robles. Aged in French and American oak, it is 100% Zinfandel. Atypical for Paso Robles Zinfandel, this gem exudes spicy raspberries in a dusty field of lavender and lilac. Opulence; an engulfing mouth feel of velvet cherries, rhubarb, brittle chocolate and finely crushed peppercorn. The finish is uplifting, with layers of bright acidity dancing on fine lush tannin. Part Primitivo in style, part California Zinfandel, this is the progeny of a dusty Paso Robles farmer and a stunning Italian minx.

“Built upon a dense and rich garnet core with a bright red rose rim, the Lamborn 2015 Zinfandeli “The Fire Stprm” is a pure mountaintop Zinfandel. Swirling the glass reveals an alluring bouquet of black cherry, raspberry, vanilla bean, pepper and spice. Subtle tones of clove and toasted oak on the palate open up to more prominent notes of dark fruit, leather, and cola. The velvety mouthfeel lingers to a strong and lengthy finish. A stunning beauty from Lamborn’s mountain vineyard!” – Heidi Barrett, winemaker
Brown Zinfandel 2016, Napa Valley, CA$48.00Add to cart
The Brown family started as growers in Napa back in the late 70's selling their fruit to such prestigious wineries as T-Vine, Grgich Hills and Green and Red. In 1995, they started their own label with consulting winemaker, Duane Dappen (D-Cubed) getting them going. That was a great day for the wine world! The flagship Napa Valley Zinfandel historically has borne the responsibility of being the ultimate representative of what the Brown property and its unique microclimate have to offer—the cream of the Brown Estate zinfandel crop blended into one stellar wine. As such, it is the most challenging zin they produce because it requires commingling of several distinct personalities into a singular well-adjusted protagonist. The fact that each vineyard’s qualities complement and enhance the others’ virtues is a testament to the integration, fluidity, and perpetual motion—the balancing act!—that is Brown Estate itself. Stunning gemstone magenta core and ruby rim. True on the nose to the hallmark Brown Estate bouquet of rose petals, lily of the valley, hibiscus flowers, Asian apple, and effervescent citrus followed by dried apricot and peach. Medium body with silky mouthfeel, the palate at first delivers a burst of ripe red fruits, heavy cream, and loads of cascading exotic spice, finishing with a surprise of subtle crushed black pepper. Seamlessly integrated, elegant, and engaging. Drink now through 2022 to experience ripe fresh fruit, thereafter for a less fruity, earthier experience. 1100 cases made.
