$69.95
WA93

Another knockout from America’s first family of Zinfandel, this one features “baked plums, blackberry pie and red cherry tart notes with wafts of rose water, spice box and fallen leaves. Very full and packed with red berry preserves layers, it has a firm, chewy frame and long, perfumed finish.” – The Wine Advocate

Our tastings with the utterly vivacious Regina Martinelli, sales director for her family's 130-year-old winery, are always showstoppers. Every one of this winery's Chardonnays, Pinots Noirs, Syrahs, and Zinfandels is outstanding. If we know anything about what we're doing, the wines are going to turn you on. They have it all: brilliantly expressive fruit, concentration, and complexity. It's not often that a winery comes by and reminds us why we love wine so much. Put together a mixed case and experience the thrill for yourself. Most of these wines are sold only through the winery and are very hard to find.
