Aromas of black currant, cracked pepper, pastry crust, nutmeg and fennel fill the bouquet. On the palate, vibrant acidity and a light dusting of tannins frame notes of cherry compote, lingering through to the wine’s long and velvety finish.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs well with tomato-based dishes. Try adding in sausage or pancetta to a marinara sauce, or enjoy with pizza topped with fresh mozzarella and spicy coppa.
The oldest vines at Pagani Ranch were planted in the 1880’s though the majority of the vineyard blocks were established through 1922. The gnarly head-trained and dry-farmed old vine Zinfandel blocks are interspersed with Alicante Bouschet and planted in narrow rows better suited to horses than tractors. Most of the farming is done by hand and the resulting wines reflect the meticulous care taken in the vineyard. Silky, lush, and complex, our Pagani Zinfandel is a tribute to one of Sonoma County’s most cherished vineyards.
