Zinfandel is a variety of red grape planted in over 10 percent of California vineyards. DNA fingerprinting revealed that it is genetically equivalent to the Croatian grape Crljenak Kaštelanski, and also the Primitivo variety traditionally grown in the "heel" of Italy, where it was introduced in the 1700s. The grape found its way to the United States in the mid-19th century, and became known by variations of the name "Zinfandel", a name of uncertain origin.
Sourced from four blocks of vineyards which average 80+ years of age, this Zinfandel delivers a great nose, wonderful mouth-feel, good legs and a silky-smooth finish. Marketplace Favorite!
With over a half-dozen gold medals to its credit so far, it's easy to see why this varietal has become the flagship of our Campus Oaks line.
