History of Zinfindel

Red Zinfandel is an "American Classic" wine - it was even originally thought to be made of native Californian grapes. Research has now shown that the Zinfandel Grape originated in Italy, but this wine is still mostly grown in California. The grape grows its best in cool, coastal locations.

The color of a Zin is deep red, bordering on black. Zinfandel is a spicy, peppery wine, with a hint of fruity flavor - berries or dark cherries are often the taste range. Zinfandel goes well with "typical American" food - pizza, burgers, etc. It's hearty enough to match up with thick red sauces.

Red Zinfandel should be served at around 65 degrees, in a narrow-mouthed glass. Most people like to drink Zinfandels young - within a year or two - but there are also quite a few Zinfandels that age well. Note that the flavor becomes much different, far more mellow. It's completely up to you if you favor the taste of a young Zin over an old! Enjoy.
