Warming notes of spicy black pepper, cardamom and ginger rise from the glass, mingling with sunsoaked plum and black cherry. Generous blackberry, dark chocolate and licorice flavors fill the palate, accented by exotic garam masala spice that lasts well into the delightfully warm and persistent finish.

Wine Varietal: Zinfandel


Zinfandel is a black grape variety of Croatian descent. With no ties to France, Zinfandel has actually been linked to the Primitivo grape of Italy, but California is where the majority of Zinfandel is grown. This variety possesses extremely versatile characteristics from light and fruity, to jammy and ripe with high alcohol. Growing Zinfandel can be difficult due to its packed clusters and short stems, which make the vines prone to uneven ripening and mildew. Preferring a warm climate, Zinfandel is also grown in other western states in the United States as well as in Australia and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Zinfandel include red berry fruits, raspberry, blackberry, anise and pepper.
