Very peppery and briary, with a slightly green, minty edge to the riper wild berries and tobacco. A good, gutsy Zinfandel of character and a sense of place.

The 100% estate-grown Zinfandel is packed with spicy black fruit, violets and prunes. A wonderful balance can be found between the tannin and the acidity of this red, with wild berry flavors and a peppery finish.

This fine wine exemplifies Zin's wild and woolly character in this appellation, one of its natural homes. The flavors are of briary berries, dusty herbs and bitter chocolate, and while the tannins are firm, they allow the fruit through. The astringency calls for rich pasta dishes or hard cheeses.

Fritz Zinfandel is big, bold and dripping with flavors of juicy black fruit and pepper. Blueberry and blackberry are prevalent in the nose and midpalate, and the finish is all about chocolate and spice. Perfect for summer barbecues.


Winemaker's Notes:

91 POINTS WINE ENTHUSIAST Our second vintage of Reserve Zin is just as bold as our first. With a deep burgundy color and spicy tar aromatics this wine can withstand hearty fare. The palate boasts full black fruit with soft tannins and balanced acidity for a lingering finish. Only 278 cases produced. ALSO AVAILABLE IN MAGNUMS FOR $90!
