The Graziano Zinfandel comes from ten different Zinfandel vineyards scattered throughout the hillsides of Mendocino County. Many of these vineyards are still farmed by 3rd and 4th generation Italian-Americans. This is a wonderfully robust wine that delivers impressive richness and depth. What makes old vine Zin so great is not so much the power, but the elegance and complexity of its wines, with layers of wonderful fruit.

The 2002 vintage displays a rich dark purple garnet color; deep aromas of blackberry and spice combine with uplifting flavors of sweet plum and bright raspberry that give this full-bodied Zinfandel a generous mouth feel with a long, lingering finish. Pair this joie de vivre wine with everything from roasted garlic & rosemary chicken to a grilled burger with melted Gorgonzola.
