Natalie's Score: 90/100
A robust Californian Zinfandel with black raspberry and blackberry jam aromas and flavours. High alcohol is balanced by deeply flavoured and ripened fruit. Finishes with some smoke and dark spice. Pair with hamburgers.
Zinfandel food pairings: pizza, tomato-based pastas, grilled meats, burgers, roasted chicken or turkey.
Blissful Blue Cheese Wine

|Sin Zin is an elegant style of Zinfandel, due to our growing region and winemaking style. We harvest grapes from throughout the Alexander Valley - including the valley floor, hillsides and benchlands looking for a balance of ripeness and acidity in each lot to showcase our valley. This balance explains Sin Zin’s restaurant popularity; it is always a food friendly style of Zinfandel.|
The 2013 growing season was almost identical to 2012. The year began with another dry winter and spring, then throughout the summer we experienced a warm growing season with abundant sunshine and even growing temperatures. Our grapes ripened evenly and proceeded at a fairly quick pace. While news of the lack of rain dominated conversations, there was an upside to the drought; the grapes had more concentrated flavors than in 2012.
The 2013 is 99% Zinfandel along with a touch of Petite Sirah for inky dark color. There are aromas of black cherry, spice, black pepper, plum, oak, vanilla and blueberry jam . This chewy, well balanced Zinfandel has spicy flavors of bright cherry, raspberry, plum and black cherry. There is nice acidity and length to the finish.
