Dusty, dry aromas of raspberry, cherry and plum. This is juicy and fresh in the mouth but expansive and explosive in intensity with thick tannins, blueberry and black cherry flavors, bold well integrated spice and a return to dusty dry notes of jammy black currant fruit and oak spice on the finish.

Notes: Rooted in the independent California spirit, Bear Flag Sonoma County Zinfandel is a true original. Our winemaker harnesses the wild, untamed Zinfandel vines the region is known for and crafts a bold wine that is full of character and unrelenting flavor. Structured and full-bodied, Bear Flag Zinfandel has spicy character complemented by jammy, dark fruit flavors reminiscent of blueberry pie. Notes of toasted oak and vanilla combine to create a plush mouthfeel and lingering finish. Winemaking: The majority of our grapes are sourced from the Dry Creek Valley, one of the most renowned Zinfandel growing areas in California. The Dry Creek Valley’s daytime heat and cool, calm nights enable Zinfandel to develop bold fruit characteristics along with hints of spice and complexity that is unique to the region. Additional Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from iconic vineyards above Sonoma Valley was added to the final blend, adding dark fruit character and balanced structure.
