This is a great Zinfandel from Sonoma County. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Drinking very nicely now with nice complexity and balance.
Wine Spectator 90 points. Wine Enthusiasts 89 points.
This is another lovely wine from the Wagner family. I’ve had their California Zinfandel before, which wasn’t that great. This is so much better.
Aged for 12 months in French and American Oak barrels. This was a great vintage and it is showing in this fine Zinfandel.
