Napa Cellars Zinfandel 2016
This 2016 Zinfandel boasts bright aromas of fresh blackberry, anise, bits of clove, cassis, spicy black pepper, and saffron. On the palate, intense brambly fruit, figs, dark toasty notes, vanilla, and cocoa are threaded with hints of cedar. This wine is weighty and juicy with balanced acidity accenting soft and supple tannins.
Winemaker Joe Shirley recommends pairing this wine with chicken cacciatore or a well-seasoned steak topped with fresh basil.
Blend: 86% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah.
