Ripe, wild strawberries with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe vanilla laced fruit combines with soft tannins and a lovely balanced acidity. Very more-ish and surprisingly elegant.

The Nancy's Vines Zinfandel draws primarily from a wide selection of our oldest, most historic and shyest-bearing Zinfandel blocks in Contra Costa County which make up 92% of this blend. Grapes were planted by Italian and Portuguese immigrants in the sandy, phylloxera-resistant soils of Oakley, California more than 100 years ago. The lots that we hand-selected are the result of sensitive farming practices, the singular Oakley terroir and a unique cooling band of air that flows from the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers. The remainder of the blend is selected from prized vineyards in Lodi County. The wine is 90% Zinfandel, 4% Petite Sirah, 3% Carignan and 3% Syrah. The grapes underwent near total de-stemming and a very gentle crushing to ensure a large percentage of whole berries in the must - contributing to the explosive fruit character of the wine. The grape juice, skins and seeds (called "must") along with some added yeasts were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at the optimum temperature to extract rich flavours and provide excellent colour. The wines were pressed off their skins at dryness and racked gently before being laid down to a complement of American oak cooperage for 7 months - approximately 35% new.

Accompany this wine with slow cooked BBQ pork, chicken mole or spinach mushroom casserole.
