Dark purple in colour, plenty of cherry aromas layered with anise and apricot. Juicy flavours of raspberry and blackberry complemented by notes of spice and licorice. Medium-bodied with a balanced acidity and long finish. A touch of Syrah and Merlot was added to the 93% Zinfandel, harvested from across California, partly from the Russian River Valley.
Food friendly, pair it with roasted red meat, steak, chops and prime rib.
About the winery:
Buena Vista Winery has a rich heritage as the first premium winery in California. And its founder, Agoston Haraszthy, was a pioneer with an unending commitment to California wine. He immigrated from Europe in 1840 and sought the perfect ‘terroir’ for exceptional wine. He ultimately settled in Sonoma, birthplace of California, where he founded Buena Vista Winery in 1857. He was a committed farmer, innovator and vintner. His beloved Buena Vista Winery today is committed to continue the imaginative vision and unrivaled legacy, with an exiting range of Zinfandel, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
