We approached this wine with a hint of apprehension because of the 15.5% alcohol content. We expected this wine to be overripe and raisiney, but were pleasantly surprised. I was just a bit ripe, but the ripe aromas enhanced rather than detracted from the overall experience. The eucalyptus in the nose offset the fruit which we characterized as strawberry and currants. No tannins, the wine is peaking.

CaliforniaRenwood Zinfandel is a true red wine gem from one of the top wineries in California. Situated in the picturesque Amador County of northern California, Renwood Winery is surrounded by the rolling hills and rushing streams of California's gold country. Renwood was established in 1993 and is one of the most respected wine producers in the Sierra Foothills, specializing in Zinfandel. Renwood Winery is a grateful steward of the land, reflected in its commitment to environmentally friendly and sustainable farming and production techniques. Renwood has long been renowned for its robust, richly flavored Zinfandels, many of them made from old, dry-farmed vines. Renwood Zinfandel is described by the winemaker as "a fresh and youthful wine. Strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas, with just a hint of oak. The flavors are soft and flavorful with an appealing tang on the finish. This wine is reminiscent of old time Zinfandel, where the fruit is prominent and the wine's character is very honest with great drinkability. Not serious or complicated, and with none of the heavy influence of oak or overzealous cellaring, it is a great sipping wine." With beautiful balance and a long, smooth finish, it's the perfect American red wine for Thanksgiving!Enjoy Renwood Zinfandel with your Thanksgiving turkey, or with roast chicken, BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables and cheeses.

Dark ruby in color, the bouquet of this wine consists of cranberry, allspice, nutmeg and blackberry. With immediate flavors of ripe berry fruits, holiday spices follow and then lead into chalky tannins and a touch of vanilla bean.

Renwood Zinfandel Old Vine is dark ruby in color. The bouquet of Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel conists of cranberry, allspice, nutmeg and blackberry. With immediate flavors of ripe berry fruits, holiday spices follow and then lead into firm tannins and a touch of vanilla bean. Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel is always a crowd pleaser.
