Tasting Notes: Ripe cherry, Fig and Nutmeg.
For us, the definition of a classic California table wine can only be Zinfandel. It’s a fresh, vibrant grape when picked early and pairs well with food. Only in recent decades has Zinfandel’s reputation evolved to be overly extracted and big. La Boutanche brings back the classic style of Zinfandel that feels timeless and is just plain delicious. The Zinfandel grapes were destemmed and naturally fermented in open top stainless fermenters. After the wine was gently pressed, it was aged in neutral French oak barrels for nine months. We made this acid-driven, food-friendly wine in a liter size that everyone can enjoy at the table.
