A full-bodied, high-alcohol wine with delicious, lip-smacking flavours of black and purple plums. Pair with barbecued meats.

Zinfandel food pairings: barbeque pork side ribs, slow-braised beef brisket in wine sauce, stuffed lamburgers with feta cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Ripe, ripe and ripe berry fruit! Nice floral and vanilla notes as well - if you can get through the jammy berry notes. A pleasant medium to light-bodied Zinfandel with moderate acidity, low tannins, clean concentration ripe berry flavours and a smooth finish. Enjoy with BBQ beef souvlaki skewers. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
The Federalist (2014) is a red wine blend of 93% Zinfandel and 7% Syrah. The wine spent 12 months in 25% new oak barrels. The label features the First President of the United States and General of The Continental Army and is also known as the Father of the United States. In short, a legend. George Washington once stated: "My manner of living is plain and I do not mean to be put out of it. A glass of wine and a bit of mutton are always ready.” - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
