2013 Backyard Zinfandel
This Zinfandel has won Silver medals in Chronicle for the last two consecutive years, 2016 & 2017. In the winemakers words, this is a "Big Zin, not for the shy" at heart. It has a beautiful balance of ripe & deep, dark stone fruits & earthy spices, leaving you with a soft woody finish. It will always leave you wanting more.
Pairing Suggestions: This Zin dances well with the heavier dishes that bring us comfort. Enjoy it along side dark, hearty, stews like chilis or chowders, pizzas with thick dough & rich tomato sauce, or allow it to be the perfect complement to Mom's perfectly layered lasagna.
