This is the second vintage of Baileyana Zinfandel and it continues the winery’s Gold Medal winning ways with this varietal. An 88-Point rating at the California State Fair Wine Competition is further proof the winery is on a high road with their Zinfandel program. It certainly helps to use fruit from the Central Coast’s Paso Robles region, one of the premier spot for producing Zinfandel grapes. The area’s warm days and cool coastal evenings are ideal for the development of intense varietal characteristics of black berry and plum.

The 1999 Baileyana Zin shows very ripe Zinfandel fruit, enriched with black cherry and spice. Supple on the entry and well balanced, the wine offers deep, concentrated blackberry flavors, joined by a briary note and dusty spice in the lengthy finish. Pair it with big-flavored foods such as smoky pork ribs.
