Winemaker's Notes

Zinfandel consistently displays intense raspberry, black pepper, and spice aromas along with flavors which make it classic El Dorado Zinfandel. Warm days and cool nights allow our grapes to slowly reach optimum maturity while maintaining excellent natural acidity. This, combined with minimal irrigation, results in a balanced wine rich with varietal character.

Californian Zinfandel

Californian Zinfandels tend to be Very full-bodied and have High Acidity

While California Zinfandel can be produced in various styles, ranging from light to full-bodied, they all exhibit a certain fruit forwardness that is frequently described as “jammy”. It is also known for licorice, spicy and peppery notes.

Zinfandel has gotten a bad rap from the abundant jugs of cheap, pink “white zin” lining the bottom shelves of many grocery store chains. However, this grape variety produces quality red wines that are food-friendly, versatile and delicious.
