About This Item

This wine is a blend of Zinfandel 75% and Petite Sirah 25%, hand harvested and cellared in 30% new and 70% Neutral American oak.  A medium-bodied, ruby wine with aromas and flavors of strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and dried currants, with a creamy vanilla layer and some notes of cinnamon and cedar.  Soft tannis round out a dry, present finish.  A family favorite blend since 1972, it is excellent with red meats and classic Italian dishes.

Winemaker Notes

Great Zinfandel and Petite Sirah blends are a long-time family secret. We first planted Zinfandel in 1887 and Petite Sirah in 1968. With the 1972 vintage, we began blending some of our Zinfandel with various small amounts of Petite Sirah. This quickly became a family favorite and I carry on this traditional Nichelini blend during my stewardship. Its flavors are expressed to the fullest in delicious harmony: the ripe red-berry fruit from Zin and the dark inky color and tannins from Petite Sirah. Winemaker: Aimée Sunseri, 5th generation
