We have much to be thankful for with this exceptional Zinfandel! Today’s 92 Point (Wine & Spirits Magazine) Zin hails from the 96 Point 2007 vintage (Robert Parker, Jr.) - making it a sure thing, in our book.

In fact, this food-fantastic wine even comes with the ultimate pairing recommendation.

Our entire tasting panel just loved this wonderful wine. Bold, juicy and bright with a super long finish and just the right balance of fruit, spice and soft minerals.
Order today, and serve this delicious wine on Thanksgiving.
Lovely magenta hues with a clear and slightly darker core. Color remains even, from the core of the wine it’s edge. After swirling the wine, short, chubby, wine-stained tears move slowly downward.
Dark and lush with a rush of sweet blackberry jam, raspberry and blueberry compote. These are followed by spice cherry candy, sweet cedar, sweet brown spice. As the wine breathes, it opens to reveal subtle aromas of leather, dried fall leaves, green tobacco leaf, dusty bramble and a hint of sweet pine needle.
Bold but balanced and juicy this wine is led by jammy blackberry, sweet plum dark, cherry, sweet blueberry, tobacco leaf, wild strawberry and dark mixed spice. As the wine opens it reveals softly toasty oak, sweet spice and black pepper.
Very long, sweet and long-lingering, with sweet dark fruit that gradually gives way to sweet spice, subtle sweet tobacco and flinty black pepper.
