External Reviews for Oriel Zinfandel Russian River Valley Hugo
Fruit bomb! Delicious - one of the best Zin offerings in the store. It's soft and smooth with that mouthwatering fruit you only get in a California Zin. Excellent.
A red, spicy hunk of zin, this takes a classical tone with its earthy, tomato edge of acidity, almost steely in its sharpness against the burliness of the wine. It finishes completely dry, delicious with pepperoni pizza with a wood-oven char on the crust.
Food Pairings for Oriel Zinfandel Russian River Valley Hugo
<p>Hugo is the dominant soil in redwood regions such as Russian River Valley. As it weathers, this soil changes color, from grey to yellow to brown and finally red with old age. This red wine was produced from 100 % Zinfandel grapes from deep alluvial soils on the cool east side of the Russian River. It is open top fermented and then aged for 11 months in French oak.</p>
