Carol Shelton Wines makes it in Cucamonga Valley, California. Its aromas include plum and damp earth. A wine that is medium-bodied and dry. Peppery and lightly creamy. Having a meal that includes pancetta or tomato based dishes? Complement it with this Zinfandel.
From the winery: ”This full bodied, deep garnet Cabernet Sauvignon is dense and rich with long soft tannins and a smooth integrated structure. Classic Napa Valley, the wine is aged in French oak to create roundness and an age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon. Shows black fruits, a touch of chocolate and notes of holiday spice on the nose. The palate is rich with black berry pie, figs, smoked meats and hints of sage brush. This wine will age easily 10+ years.”
If you enjoy aromas of baking spices, blackberry and strawberry jam, grab this one. Made by Callabriga out of Alentejo, Portugal. Full-bodied and dry. A melange of raspberry preserves, cinnamon and black fruit. We suggest having this wine with steak, brown veal stock or creamy rice.
This zinfandel explodes with layers of ripe boysenberry, black raspberry, blackberry and plum compote aromas coupled with loamy earth, sweet vanilla and toasted oak scents. Rich, round and concentrated on the palate, it delivers a beautifully structured and focused core of super-rich brambleberry fruit balanced by seamlessly integrated tannins, vibrant fresh black cherry acidity, and a long, savory finish echoing the vineyard’s distinctive clay mineral character. Delicious now with hearty repasts, this luscious Zinfandel will further unfold its charms with another 3-5 years’ aging.

This Pinot Noir from the south of France is medium bodied and dry, with notes of blackcurrant jam and strawberries. Also notice hints of well intergrated oak.
From the winery: The wine highlights classic Carneros fruit: pomegranate, plum, and cherry fruit flavors, balanced by nuances of coffee and toffee. The multiple layers of flavors lead to a silky finish that lingers on the palate. Brightness of flavor from the acidity makes this a choice wine to pair with a variety of dishes such as pepper-crusted grilled salmon or pork tenderloin in a dried cherry relish.
