Zinfandel is the ultimate California red wine summer pairing and we are thrilled to bring the season to an end with our 2012 Strigoi Zinfandel from Napa Valley. A select parcel of ancient head trained vines from Calistoga provide the base for this broad shouldered, versatile red, making for a classic expression of the grape.

Deep crimson in color, powerful aromatics of blackberry pie and wild briary fruits mix with nuances of cinnamon and cedar. Rich decadent flavors of plum jam and loganberry grace the palate with grilled herb and black pepper spice, all leading to a plush finish with notes of worn leather, raspberry, and allspice. As a 2012 the Strigoi has reached an ideal drinking window while still offering many more years of enjoyment.

This wine’s body and versatility makes it a great compliment to all of your favorite summer dishes. Pair the 2012 Strigoi with your favorite grilled filet, a stuffed porkchop, or even a delicious rack of lamb. Just about anything will go well with a wine of this character.
