Known for its blackberry aromas, the bouquet shows notes of cherry, white pepper, plums and a hint of oregano, a touch of oak from barrel aging adds complexity. Subtle smoky char helps balance the concentrated fruit flavours of plum, cherry and boysenberries on the palate. A plush mouthfeel and a long, velvety finish. This dynamic Zinfandel will not disappoint.

In 1994 Four Vines Winery kicked into gear featuring eclectic, appellation-specific Zins, and one kick-ass no-oak Naked Chardonnay. They named their Zins Truant, The Sophisticate and Maverick. Rich, succulent, fruit-generous wines that pair incredibly well with food. The winery relocated to Paso Robles where they began experimenting with Rhone varietals; bigger, headier wines that are positively explosive in flavour and form. No matter the wine, Four Vines has always brought a refreshing, irreverent attitude to the industry. Today, the winery sources fruit from all over the state of California and crushes mainly on the Central Coast and in Sonoma County. This allows grapes to arrive at their peak of cool morning temperatures to the crush pad. It all starts in the vineyard… don't let anyone tell you anything else. In late 2010, Derek Benham acquired Four Vines from its founders and moved the winery operations back up north to Sonoma County where it originally started. Four Vines is now in a position to reach its full potential as a category leader in Unoaked Chardonnay and Zinfandel. The story continues…
