Product Notes:
91 points and one the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2009: "Ripe and gutsy, but there's enough finesse and personality to make it a complete package. Aromas of wild berry and white pepper lead to briary but complex plum, anise and toasty sage flavors that finish with fine, loamy tannins. Best from 2011 through 2015." (09/09)The Dusi and Preston Zin vineyards, with their rocky, calcareous soils, grow low yield vines, producing fruit of intense concentration. A splash of Mourvedre lends an extra kick in the mid-palate. The Biker has blackberry, anise spice and vanilla on the nose. Rich, black fruit and spice, lingering to a silky vanilla oak finish. Biker rocks!

Food Pairing:
Zinfandel pairs well with cheese, pizza, tomato pasta dishes, pesto, chicken with heavy sauce and all red meats.

About Varietal:
Zinfandel is a red grape varietal grown extensively in California. Historically, Zinfandel has been used to produce mass-market, fairly mediocre wines. In recent years, however, a number of California wineries have begun producing exceptional wines from this grape.

A geneticist at UC Davis discovered that the grape variety known in California as Zinfandel has the exact same DNA as an Italian grape known as Primitivo. Though not particularly popular in Italian winemaking, it was one of the early wine grapes planted in California. Many wineries in California have Zinfandel vines dating back to the 19th century, making them some of the oldest vines in the state. These vines often produce extremely high-quality Zinfandel wines. Older vines can produce grapes with very high sugar levels, leading to wines with a natural alcohol content in excess of 16%. The Zinfandel grape is also used to create a blush wine, usually referred to as White Zinfandel. This wine, like so many pink wines, is rarely favored by wine critics, and many consider it a waste of perfectly good red grapes. The White Zinfandel market in the United States in well in excess of 20 million cases annually, easily outselling traditional Zinfandel and making it the most purchased varietal wine in the United States. The emergence of the White Zinfandel market in the 1970s helped to support the growing of Zinfandel grapes and ultimately helped lead to the renaissance of high-end Zinfandel wines. Since the mid-1990s, wineries such as Ravenswood, Dry Creek, and Ridge Vineyards have been producing exceptional wines using the Zinfandel grapes from the ?old vines? planted in the early part of the 20th century.
