Wine Review: This bright dark red colored Zinfandel from the Dry Creek Valley opens with a mild red plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is red plum with hints of faint red raspberry. I also detected a touch of strawberry and minerality toward the end. The finish is dry and gently fades away. This is a fun quaffer that many will enjoy. I would pair it with a tangy pulled pork sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Gino's Zinfandel represents a traditional field blend that my grandfather, Gino, made each year. This vintage is full of lush ripe red fruit. It has a core of sweet red currant and strawberry with a bright finish which make this a great match for many foods.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
