A Gold Medal winning Zinfandel from the well known, high quality French Camp Vineyard. This is a big, powerful wine, rich with blackberry pie, raisin and berry aromas, and sweetish, black fruit notes with cracked black pepper. Some spice and vanilla lingers on the mid palate. It has a clove-like silky finish, with a pleasant earthy quality reminiscent of Rhône Valley wines. With its robust flavors and tannins, this Zin is a red for the grill. French Camp is located just east of San Luis Obispo on California’s Central Coast. Summer temperatures at the vineyard can range from 100 degrees, down to 50 degrees, thanks to chilly ocean breezes pulled into the vineyard by a natural wind tunnel. The big temperature swing means the grapes retain ideal natural acid levels that complement the ripeness of the grapes.
