American Zinfandel, most notably from California, is a captivating wine known for its bold, fruit-forward character. Zinfandel vines are some of the oldest in the United States, contributing to the depth and concentration of flavour in the wines they produce. They exhibit a broad spectrum of flavours, from jammy blackberry, cherry, and plum to intriguing notes of pepper, liquorice, and spice. Depending on the winemaker’s style, these wines can be rich and robust or lighter and more balanced, with the unique “”Old Vine Zinfandel”” often reaching impressive levels of complexity and structure. Ideal for pairing with hearty meats and spicy dishes, American Zinfandel offers an enticing exploration of New World winemaking.
