Grgich Hills Estate Zinfandel 2012 was born in a 34-acre vineyard located in the hottest spot on the Grgich Hills Estate. The warm temperatures provide great conditions for this quintessential Californian grape to grow and ripen. Grgich Hills Estate, is perhaps difficult to pronounce but easy to appreciate. All of the vineyards on the estate are farmed naturally, without artificial pesticides or herbicides. All Grgich Hills Estate wines are certified organic.
This Zinfandel received a touch of Petite Sirah to extend the complexity and structure before spending time in oak barrels. Then the flavours are well integrated too. A great dinner wine with fresh flavours of ripe blackberries, black cherries and some black pepper. Stands up to full flavours of grilled barbecue meats, sausage pizza or a nice full lasagna.
