    Users Who Logged This Wine

    The Signature Zinfandel was produced from Old Vines off the Nichelini Ranch. This wine was aged in French oak barrels rather than American. When you smell the wine it just screams "I am Zinfandel" with bright fruit, exotic spices and rich plum quality. The wine is earthy but the very ripe fruit has been beautifully balanced by the oak and tannins. Enjoy this wine wiht braised froods, ribs and Italian foods.

    Color: Ruby

    Nose: Full nose of red fruit, some spice and pepper, a touch of loamy tannin.

    Palate; Loam here, too, but it is quite enjoyable and adds complexity. Quite a good Napa Zin, with that spice and pepper here too to complement the red fruit and backed up by good tannin for a Zin.

    PS: Nichelini is one of my favorite wineries and I happen to be a member (a bit biased!) ;-)
