In keeping with the well established Girard style, this Old Vine Zinfandel is a beautifully balanced expression of unique terroir. There's a plethora of ripe red fruit from the old vines. Their natural spiciness is augmented by the judicious use of oak to add complexity. This is a silky, juicy zinfandel which will complement a wide range of foods. The natural acidity makes it a perfect foil to tomato based sauces as well as grilled meats.
Our 2008 vintage Old Vine Zinfandel is a lush, jammy, medium-bodied wine with silky, well-integrated tannins and balanced acidity. The aroma/flavor profile includes: black cherry, red plum and pumpkin pie spices. The blend is 85% Zinfandel, 9% Petite Sirah, 4% Mourvedre and 2% Syrah.
