The Federalist Lodi Zinfandel 2014

Created to honor our founding father, this bold red is particularly American, blending 93% Zinfandel with a bit (7%) of Syrah.

With different blocks fermenting separately to maintain the character of each grape, the blend is then aged in new American oak for 12 months.

Dark purple in the glass, aromas of strawberry and ripe summer fruits set against rich exotic spices.

Flavors range from vegetal green peppers to strawberry sorbet, from marzipan to plum and cherry, a perfect balance of bright acidity and mild tannins.

Fairly high alcohol content of 14.5%. SRP of $17.76! Huzzah!

This dense red will pair well with a spicy dish, we did a chicken with coconut curry and it worked extremely well.
