Region California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll
Brand Robert Biale
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
The Oak Knoll Winegrowing region is prevalent in this wine with its ripe aromatics and juicy acidity. The nose is full of vibrant Bing cherries, raspberries, cinnamon, white cake, fresh purple flowers, subtle dried herb and toasty brown spices. The entry is bright and gives way to supple, round tannins. The lovely finish is the signature of this elegant and remarkably balanced Zinfandel that is immediately drinkable and worthy of 5 to 7 more years of cellar time.

From Oak Knoll sites near the winery, this bold red is tight in focused tannins and a firm texture. Lifted red fruit dominates-a mix of cherry and raspberry-dipped in dried herb, baking spice and vanilla oak.

The 2017 Zinfandel Black Chicken is medium to deep garnet-purple colored with broody tar, baked black fruit, plums and blueberry preserves with notes of exotic spices and tobacco. The palate is medium to full-bodied, lively, chewy and a little hollow with an earthy finish.
