For over a century, some of the best Zinfandel was made from classic old Italian field blends. Artezin has captured the essence of these traditional practices by blending grapes from distinct vineyards to create true varietal character. We believe there is elegance and complexity inherent in this varietal and this wine expresses its place and possesses concentrated varietal fruit while retaining liveliness, elegance, and complexity.
Ruby red and purple in hue, this wine has aromas of ripe red fruit, with hints of sage, cinnamon and pepper. The fruit flavors flesh out on the palate, dominated by raspberry, boysenberry and red cherry, complemented by hints of nutmeg, rosemary and spice, for a classic varietal character. Soft, supple tannins create a firm, yet lush mouthfeel. With its bright fruit-forward flavor profile, this wine is created for immediate enjoyment.
