Chris James 2017 Zinfandel
Chris James 2017 Zinfandel is one of Chris James’s first “big reds”. The wine originates from Oregon’s Columbia Gorge AVA and is a leaner and elegant style aged in neutral French Oak.
Incredibly rich in aromas of licorice, white pepper, frankincense, and warm blackberries ripening on the vine. A big ultra jammy combination of blackberry, blueberry, and mission figs that trick the mind into finding a deep sweetness that isn’t truly there.
This pairs well with roasted flatbreads covered in ricotta, heirloom tomatoes and apricot, a bacon and cheese filled jalapeño, or a meaty stack of baby back ribs.
