Josh Cellars Reserve bourbon barrel-aged 2020 Zinfandel is a big, bold and burley California Zin powerful on the palate with gobs of blackberry, dark plum, cracked pepper, vanilla and toasty, oaky, caramel flavours on the palate. Aged in Bourbon barrels and perfect to pair with smoky, sticky and saucy ribs from the BBQ.

Zinfandel food pairings: burgers and ribs from the grill, grilled game sausages, lamb ragu.
