This is a classic Sierra Foothills Zinfandel! The Sierra Foothills were first made famous during California’s Gold Rush, but today the region is a source of vinous treasures - especially the Zinfandels, which are well-suited to this warm-climate region and claim a number of high ratings and awards each year.

A powerful wine with a nice, gripping mouthfeel, the 1850 Wine Cellars’ 2016 Zinfandel has a firm texture and rich, full body that beautifully expresses the special terroir of this up-and-coming wine growing area. This Zinfandel is deeply colored with dark purple hues around its deep garnet interior and distinct notes of raspberries come through in the aroma. Flavors of sweet and sour cherries on the palate are balanced by a soft texture, big mouthfeel and lingering notes of dark fruits on the finish.
