Wine Maker Notes
Mendocino County, where the roads zig zag through the coastal mountains. Sustainability is a way of life here: we’re GMO free and bio-diesel friendly. You can leave your cell phone in Napa. Zinfandel is our first love, and Zig Zag Zin is no exception. This is a HEADY, multifaceted wine:complex as MEMORY, simple as the weight of DESIRE.Big fruit aromas of ripe raspberry, cedar and vanilla swirl from the glass, enveloping your SENSES. The chewy mouth feel yields flavors of raspberry, Pacific WILD plum, briar and white pepper. Enjoy Zig Zag Zin with good friends, great MUSIC, and laid-back NOSH: grilled pizza, cheese fondue, or hanger steak with pommes frites.
The Mendocino Wine Company was founded in 2004 with the formation of a partnership between the families of Tom and Tim Thornhill and Paul Dolan. This partnership purchased the historic Parducci Wine Cellars in Mendocino County, California. Parducci is extremely conscious of their environmental responsibilities. From tree-free papers and soy based inks to biodiesel tractors and organic grape growing, Parducci is creating a model of quality and environmental sustainability for other wineries to follow.
