The 2003 RustRidge Estate Zinfandel from the famed Chiles Valley region in Napa Valley is solidly structured. As the wine opens, the tannins become silkier, the viscosity of the wine increases, and the fruitiness evolves fully on the palette.

The 2003 Zinfandel shined at the California State Fair Wine Competition by winning a Gold MedalBest of Class.

In the Connoisseurs’ Guide, the empowered Zinfandel received 93 Points, — “Attractive elements of vanillin oak and a full measure of well-ripened blackberries meld seamlessly in both the concentrated aromas and impressively extracted flavors of this very deep and flavorful wine. For all of its considerable substance and stuffing, this Zinfandel is very much a table wine in style, and its long line of rich fruit makes moot a slight bit of finishing heat. While it may be enjoyed in the near term, it has the clear capacity to get better for three to five years.”

The wine pairs brilliantly with a broad range of entrees: from pizza to gourmet masterpieces.
