Deep scarlet hue with aromas of raspberries, vanilla, savory spices and notes of coffee. Medium bodied on the palate with an abundance of fresh fruit and black pepper flavors. This wine is round, silky, and finishes with generous flavors of ripe blackberries, with a long, layered finish.

Pairs with anything from the meat aisle, from barbeque pork ribs, leg of lamb or big, hearty meals. Always a winner.

Zinfandel is often called “California’s Grape,” and despite the fact that it has been genetically traced to Croatia, it certainly seems to show best all over the Golden State.  Today’s offering comes from Frank Family Vineyards in Napa Valley, a region certainly more well known for its Cabernet. Napa’s climate is also wonderful for growing Zinfandel.  Warm sunny days lead to well ripened Zinfandel grapes that tend to show more of Zin’s jammy side.

VINEYARDS

This Napa Valley-designate wine is cultivated from our estate vineyards in Chiles Valley and Rutherford and from neighboring vineyards in St. Helena and Calistoga. Frank Family’s S&J Vineyard comprises 206 acres of land located east of the Vaca mountain range in Napa’s Capell Valley. It is planted to 58 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, along with 9 acres of Petite Sirah, and 9 acres of Zinfandel. The soils are fertile, well-draining and clay loam-based, reminiscent of the Rutherford Bench. Frank Family’s newest vineyard, acquired in 2012, Benjamin Vineyard is located east of Conn Creek Road in the heart of Rutherford AVA. This vineyard comprises 50 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, 8 acres of Petite Verdot, and 2 acres of Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The site is anchored by gravely loam soil as a result of sediment from the nearby Conn Creek and Napa River.
