Zinfandel is the descendant of Italy’s Primitivo grape and one of American’s most widely planted red grape varieties. This grape is capable of producing top quality red wines which can ravel Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers an array of flavors including black and red fruit, spice, pepper, tar, and licorice. There are three distinct styles of Zinfandel: 1) fresh and fruity, easy drinking with light tannins 2) medium-bodied with fuller flavor with noticeable spiciness and ripe tannins and 3) a big, concentrated and powerful style with intense fruit and unbelievable richness.
Zinfandels are best served at room temperature with beef, lamb, burgers, or ribs.
