I'll take a dozen eggs, a pound of figs & a 'Black Chicken'. So it went at the Biale farm during prohibition when the locals wanted a little illicit Zin. We love subversives. You'll love the jammy fruit.

Plump, juicy, and firm, this is one irresistible bird- a Zinfandel brimming with fruit, spices, and an Oak Knoll District perfume of concentrated blackberry compote, bright raspberries, clove, five spice, black tea, toasted brioche, and notes of caramel and vanilla. Voluptuous, gentle, and yummy as it is, this freshly-bottled wonder has the stuffing for the long haul and is just getting started. The 2012 Black Chicken-if cellared well-will continue to improve for the next 5-8 years and likely well beyond. - WineryWinemaking:The fruit was hand-sorted first in the field then again at the winery. Open-top fermentation and punched down three times per day. Pressed to Burgundian oak-20% new. Aged 14 months.Alcohol:15.8%

Biale's richness, refinement, elegance and balance make the wines a memorable experience with a diverse range of food. And while the wines will age gracefully, Zinfandel is one of the best wines for drinking young. - Winery ** Only 10 in Stock **

Robert Biale Black Chicken Zinfandel Napa Valley 2009 750ML


External Review

Vintage: 2009 09/27/2011

The deep ruby/purple-tinged 2003 Zinfandel Black Chicken (16% alcohol) reveals a big, projected nose of black fruits, licorice, and plums. Full-bodied, opulent, and fleshy, it is a pure, exotic, hedonistic Zin to enjoy over the nest 5-6 years.

This blackish purple wine shows currant, blackberry, dried fruit, molasses, berry jam and vanilla flavors on its luscious mid-palate. Supple young tannins emerge on the rich, jammy finish.
