Food Pairings for C.G. di Arie Zinfandel California Shenandoah Valley
Most of the grapes used for this Zinfandel came from a hillside vineyard in Amador County. Other varieties added, were in order to improve the balance and add complexity to the wine and was aged in predominantly French oak for about one year.My style of wine is fully extracted with fruit forward, good balance, a complex mid-palate and a long lingering finish. This Zinfandel meets all the criteria of my style of wine. It is well balanced with deep color and typical varietal flavor and aroma. The black cherry flavors progress in the mid-palate to blackberry and plum and the bold finish of chocolate lingers pleasantly long after the wine is consumed.
