Peirano Estate Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel
This wine in the glass has a beautiful burgundy color. The initial whiff of this seductive wine produces aromas of spiced blackberry, plum, dried cherry and baking spices. On the palate, you swirl this rich dark wine around in your mouth and the initial sensation is that of luscious, juicy, freshly-picked ripe blackberries and freshly baked blackberry pie, lightly spiced. The second sip explodes with sweet ripe black cherries, black licorice, black plums and black pepper with moderate tannins and juicy acidity. This rich, mouth filling Old Vine Zinfandel will pair with ALL foods, from that gourmet burger on the grill, to a nut-crusted seared rare ahi. Our favorite is a tomato sauce pasta with Italian sausage sautéed in green & red banana peppers, onion and fresh garlic.
