This is an example of a nearly perfect textbook flavor profile for a (red) zinfandel from the Napa Region! The winemaker has once again outdone himself in making a varietal that is text-book in flavor for a wine in my opinion. This delightful taste treat hits your tongue with a ton of jam on the fore of the palate followed by a classic explosion of berries and fruit through the mouth and finishes a second after you swallow as a starburst of white pepper reaches from the back of your throat and pulls your tongue to the back of your mouth to fully absorb every last drop of the spice and flavor that you’ve unleashed upon it!

It converted a non-red wine drinking woman into now being open to drinking red wines. Smooth. Tasty with an almost forever stretching background of fullness. I never be embarrassed to serve this fine wine. Seems to getting better with time.

Medium bodied and spicy, with sweet oak. Great wine, great price! Very sip worthy.

Deep dark red, classic Zinfandel aromas of jam, blackberries and spice, full-bodied and smooth, dark fruits and hint of black cherry, with peppery and spicy finish, lingering warmth and light tannins.

Opens with notes of strawberry and fresh-baked rhubarb pie. Jammy with toast and spice, the aromas lead to juicy ripe berry flavors with a long fruit finish that is rich with dried cherry, light black pepper and toasty notes. The wine has firm tannins and a smooth medium-body that rounds out the balanced palate.

Wine Tasting NotesNapa Cellars Zinfandel is dark purple and opaque in the glass. The nose reveals intense, ripe berries, candied strawberry preserves and cinnamon spice. The palate follows with juicy, rounded fruit flavors that mingle with layers of warm, supple tannins leading to a long, plush finish. Perfect with barbeque, try pairing the wine with Baby Back Ribs or Gourmet Pulled-Pork Sandwiches garnished with sweet and spicy coleslaw.

2005 Napa Valley Zinfandel has bright cherry, raspberry fruit and some nice spice. This medium bodied wine has rich tannins that are smooth and supple, with balanced acidity. A little time in the bottle will make the elegance of this wine really

The 2004 Napa Cellars Zinfandel offers a finesse and elegance not often typical of the varietal. On the nose, the wine reveals jammy fruit aromas of raspberry, blueberry, and cedar. The true complexity, however, is expressed on the palate with a lingering finish of blackberry jam, vanilla spice and a hint of rustic dustiness. For food parings, Zinfandel and BBQ are a natural. Try our luscious Napa Valley Zinfandel with honey glazed barbequed pork ribs and a side of good old fashion coleslaw. The fruit for the 2004 Napa Cellars Zinfandel was sourced from vineyards in North East Napa Valley where the fog burns off earlier in the morning and the summer evening temperatures remain higher than the rest of the valley. Because the thick-skinned Zinfandel is one of the latest ripening varietals, the sun and heat are needed for the grapes to achieve full ripeness. Overall, 2004 was a great vintage for warm weather grapes such a Zinfandel due to the consistently above average temperatures experienced throughout September and October.

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright aromas of red berry, cardamom, toasted pie crust and white peppercorn. The aromas lead to rich flavors of warm boysenberry, plum and currant with notes of cranberry on the finish. The Napa Cellars 2011 Zinfandel is medium-bodied with bright acidity and a smooth, juicy mouthfeel that lasts from start to finish.
