2013 Fair Oaks Zinfandel 

A claret style Zinfandel with full, jammy flavors of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry and wild berry flavors with a hint of black pepper and anise. A nice touch of acidity makes a clean, food friendly finish. Our expert wine panel enjoyed it from appetizers through to dessert and wished they had more.

Tasting Notes
This is a Zinfandel lovers’ Zinfandel. Although vineyard practices are updated frequently to introduce state of the art vineyard techniques, these “old vines” produce soft, approachable wines with lush fruit character. The 2010 Fair Oaks has an acidic touch makes for a clean, food friendly finish to a jammy, flavorful wine.

Our expert wine panel confessed they burned through their case pretty fast. “We were having a delightful meal that was just finishing up,” one reported, “and just after desert we decided we’d have one more bottle just for the heck of it.” Her face suddenly turned despondent and she stopped talking. Another of the panel put his hand on her shoulder and explained, grim faced, “We… we just ran out.” The panel shook their head and asked if the new case had arrived in the mail yet.
Varietal Notes
Zinfandel is recognized as America’s Heritage Wine. Its historical association with the Wild West, the Gold Rush and rugged individualists taming rugged territory, captured the imagination of 100s of winemakers and thousands of enthusiasts. Once only planted in California, today its popularity has sprung new plantings across the United States and around the world. A typically robust red wine, Zinfandel grapes are planted in one in every ten California vineyards, white it is also grown in states across the nation. They can run a bit “hot”, or too alcoholic, but they frequently tend to be very refreshing.
Winemaker Notes
Fair Oaks is named for a vineyard at the end of an oak tree lined lane. It's one of many of the vineyards in Lodi more than 75 years old.
Food Pairing Notes
Our food pairing expert advised we try this with barbecued meats or sausages and Mexican or Southwestern style dishes. Try it with baked bean chorizo chili: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/black-bean-chorizo-chili-10000000428085/

I've fallen in love with Zinfandels recently and this is one I like a lot. Got it in a Mystery Pack and am ordering more.
