User Reviews for Basignani Winery Zinfandel Erik's Big Zin Lot 1

Winemaker's Notes:

Swirl, Sniff, Sip Dark ruby color. Wonderfully bright, rich berry-pepper aromas show superb ripeness with balanced jammy notes. The flavors are rich, concentrated and laced with black pepper, licorice and blackberry notes. This vintage's texture is remarkably juicy, though balanced by ripe tannins and elegant acidity. Firm yet round, this is a classi_level2c Napa Valley Zinfandel. Food Ideas: Expect it to be delicious served with rich firm cheeses like Dry Jack, flavorful pastas, especially those tomato-based, and savory BBQ. Winemaking Grapes for this wine were gently de-stemmed without crushing into open-top fermenters. Fermentation lasted 7-10 days at a peak juice temperature of 80º F., with the wine then pressed off the skins at dryness. Malolactic fermentation took place in the barrels where the wine aged for nine months. Varietal: 100% Zinfandel The Place: 100% Napa Valley
