Zinfandel Notes

The California wine country’s warm, easygoing weather gives Zinfandel a jammy, juicy fruitiness (except when it’s made into dull, lightly sweet white Zinfandel). Typically high in both alcohol and flavor-boysenberries with a touch of brambly spiciness-Zinfandel is the perfect cookout wine, great with grilled burgers, sausages or chicken, or even chips and dip.

Bonterra Sauvignon Blanc- Reg. $14.99 SALE $11.99
First up this week we have a Sauvignon Blanc from Bonterra, one of our most popular organic wineries. True to form, this crisp white has aromas of grapefruit, grass and wet stones. These characteristics are mirrored on that palate with a bright burst of citrus up front leading to clean minerality and pleasant acidity. Very refreshing, it’s very much a crowd-pleaser that will pair with a wide variety of foods such as chicken or seafood. That being said, it’s pretty great just on it own, especially if we get more of these 70 degree days!
Mojo Zinfandel- Reg. $12.99 SALE $10.99
Second up for the night we have the Mojo Zinfandel from Amador County, California. An awesome wine for the price, this zinfandel is bursting with character. In the glass it has a dark and rich purple hue with blackberry and cassis aromas along side a light spiciness. Up front the fruit is very clean and established before leading into deep spicy notes of black pepper and a lengthy, dry finish. Another wonderful zin from our “We have Zinned” display, don’t miss your chance to try this bottle while we have it open and it’s on sale!

Seghesio Zinfandel- Reg. $24.99 SALE $21.99 

Third up this evening we have the Seghesio Zinfandel. A long time store favorite, this zin is phenomenal. The grapes for this wine are sourced from the Home Ranch Estate and none of the vines used in this wine are younger than 40 years. A blend of mostly Zin with a bit of Petit Syrah and Syrah, this wine is spicy and velvety. Loads of complexity from the fruit flavors through to the lingering finish, this Zin is sure to hit all the right notes. You can find in it our “We have Zinned” display; Information we are sure you’ll want after you give this one a try!
Pendulum Cabernet Sauvignon- Reg. $19.99 SALE $15.99
Last, but certainly not least, we have the Pendulum Cabernet Sauvignon. This full-bodied Cab is dense up front, with flavors of spicy black pepper, ripe blueberries and black plum that carry the wine from the start to close. Notes of leather, Red Delicious apple and toasty oak linger on the long and satisfying finish, framed with firm and slightly tight tannins (it opens up beautifully with a bit of air). A wonderful way to close out the evening, don’t miss giving this bottle a try!
