The Zinfandel grapes and Zinfandel wine are inextricably linked with California. Zinfandel is one of oldest, if not the oldest, grape variety in California and today it occupies about 10 percent of all California vineyards. The grape variety originates from Croatia and was brought here by early settlers in the 1820’s.
The primary flavors of Zinfandel are jam, blueberry, black pepper, cherry, plum, boysenberry, cranberry, and licorice. When you taste Zinfandel it often explodes with candied fruitiness followed by spice and often a tobacco-like smoky finish.
