Red Wine Zinfandel from Wente Californian. This Zinfandel is from the Livermore Valley about 30 miles west of the San Francisco Bay. It has a nice berry jam flavor, smooth tannins and a lingering fruit finish



Tasting Notes:

With a nice berry jam flavor, smooth tannins and a lingering fruit finish, this Zinfandel was specially selected to be included into the Wente Vineyards Reserve portfolio for its color, fruit, and tannin potential. Rich, smooth, and full, this is an excellent example of Livermore Valley Zinfandel.

Aging Each blend was aged separately, with part in neutral French and American oak barrels and part in stainless steel tanks.
