Food Pairings for Peter Franus Napa Zin
This is such a great Californian Zinfandel! One of the few I have tasted lately that can rival such names as Turley and Seghesio. Peter Franus started up the Peter Franus Wine Company in 1991 after he was the wine maker for Mount Veeder Winery for a number of years. Produced from 92% Zinfandel grapes from the Brandlin Vineyard in Mount Veeder along with a splash Charbono, Mourvedre and Carignan this warm and inviting Zin shows great complexity. The wine is dark ruby in color with aromas of raspberries, lavender, plum with a touch of clove and anise. The lush palate exudes fruity flavors of plum and blackberries balanced with hints of spice. The finish is lingering with a low tannin profile and a sublte warmness.
[Blind] Light red color. Dusty old-world nose, red/black cherry. Medium body, juicy, spicy. Red fruit. Medium acid. Medium+ tannin.
