Wine Name: Zinfandel/Syrah
Alcohol Content: 14.30%
Description: Rich berry, white pepper, ginger, smooth
tannins, well-balanced fruit to acidity, great for a casual wine
Winemaker’s Notes: A great blending of Old and New World styles. Syrah originated in the Middle East in the
Persian city of Shiraz. It was brought to France by the
Romans. Zinfandel’s lineage was unknown, until recently, when it was discovered through DNA testing. It is a distant relative of the Italian Primativo, originating in Croatia (Plvac Mali).
Pairings: A great wine with food or simply by itself.
Experiment with venison or roasted beef, sauces herbed with oregano and sage, and conversations with friends gathered around a large, rustic wood kitchen table.
