Robert Biale Vineyards Black Chicken Zinfandel 2021

Category:

Zinfandel from Napa Valley, California

Tasting Notes

Showing the influence of the breezy and fog-laced Oak Knoll District, the 2021 vintage offers rich, plush fruit, delicate acidity and a structure defined by well-ripened tannins. Layered notes of black cherry, raspberry, sandalwood, bergamot, cloves, blueberry, and balsam on the nose. Delicate, yet rich with plum compote, violets, and baking spice on the palate. An ideal vintage of the Black Chicken that, with proper cellaring, will continue to improve for the next 5-7 years.

James Suckling – 93 Points

Dark plums, crushed dark berries, cocoa beans, dried orange and moist bark. Medium-bodied, spiced and racy with sleek tannins and vivid acidity. Flavorful and silky.

Pairing Notes

Pairs well with cured meat, red meat, and cheeses such as asiago, cheddar, gouda, manchego, and parmesan.
