An immediately noticeable dark inky color typical of Petite Sirah greets our wine glass. Flavour and bouquet of blueberries, chocolate, and black pepper. Nicely balanced, dense tannin structure balanced against the jammy character of this wine.
An excellent compliment to red sauce pasta dishes, roasted pork, barbecued beef, and grilled chicken or salmon.
About the winery:
In 1857, the Hungarian Agaston Haraszthy bought 225 ha of wine land in Sonoma. He planted it with 100,000 vines of 300 different varieties of European origin. It is one of the reasons why Sonoma became the epicenter of wine in California. The current owners and winemakers, Vallejo and Sean Haraszthy (4th generation!) are still a reference for quality Zinfandels from different regions.
