Sutter Home`s California Zinfandel is vinified primarily from grapes grown in the Sierra Foothill and Lodi regions. Both of these areas are considered to be among California`s finest sites for the cultivation of California`s signature grape variety.
This delicious Zinfandel displays classic varietal character with a fresh berry aroma and a hint of spicy black pepper. The flavors in this medium-bodied wine are bright and juicy, with a zesty spiciness and supple tannins. A great value, this Zinfandel pairs beautifully with casual, everyday foods such a grilled and barbecued chicken, baby back ribs, sausages, pizza, pastas, and burgers.
Wine Maker Notes
The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks for ten days at 85 degrees Fahrenheit, then aged for approximately one year in American oak.

We enjoy a glass with barbecued-pulled pork sandwiches. Add some creamy coleslaw as a side dish and you will get the full zin experience.
