2012 Zinfandel

For vintage 2012 we are continuing with blending in Zinfandel’s kissin’ cousin Primitivo for its kiss of darker color and tannin structure. Me thinks a rather lovely add to our up-front fruity Estate Zen Zin. For even greater yumminess (if there could be any more) part of this blend is head-trained unirrigated Zinfandel Deaver clone adding its deeper berry towards prune flavors.
The better part of 2 years barrel-aging has allowed for spicy-vanilla/clove nuance additions and marriage with the rampant cherry/raspberry/cinnamon flavors. Ah those many layers of subtle flavors just keep on a-comin’. This vintage compares well with our award-winning “Best in California” vintage 2011.
How about pairing Bianchi Zen Zin with an olallieberry-glazed roasted pork loin, stuffed with corn bread and raisins? Salivation action!
