It’s seems like to have been quite a while since Zinfandel held sway in the wine spotlight. There once was a time when Zin was all the rage. Then, to paraphrase Casey Stengel: ‘it’s too popular; nobody goes there anymore.’

Now, with the rise of Pinot Noir, the ambivalence of Cabernet, and the somewhat concurrent demotion of Merlot and Syrah – nobody apparently waxes philosophically about Zin anymore. Well, we do!

Join us as we delve into several older Zinfandels, to see if the pervasive rumors about its early demise are in fact, true or merely exaggerated.
