Graziano Zinfandel 2003

Member Review by vino83:

I enjoyed several and I mean several glasses of this great Cali Zin last night. The first glass I had was from the bar and actually listed as an Italian wine. This was almost right considering the Grazanio family now in Cali was originally from Italy. The glass from the bar was the best of the night considering it had been open for a few days and had plenty of time to breath. This was a dark purple/red with nice red fruits and soft tannins.

In the late 1920's Vincenzo had to depend on selling grapes to home winemakers on the east coast and bootlegging wine to support his family. In the 1940's after Prohibition and the Depression, Vincenzo, along with other local grape growers, formed the Mendocino Vineyards Winery, which eventually was sold and merged into the historically significant Cresta Blanca Winery in the town of Ukiah. Gregory Graziano, Vincenzo's grandson, now carries on the family winemaking tradition that his grandfather set the foundation for and that his father Joseph later handed down to Gregory. Read less
