Enjoy With

Any taco you can dream up. This wine gets along with colorful plates like lamb kebabs with crushed tomatoes over saffron rice, BBQ chicken with pomegranate molasses, and labneh with fresh herbs.

Drink When

An impromptu happy hour has started in your kitchen – snacks, laughter, and light Italian disco start playing out of nowhere. If you’re about to dive into your favorite takeout or just need some California love, reach for this bottle.

Martha's Notes

This wine is so joyous, and to me, distinctly Californian. I never knew how much I loved Zinfandel until I started working as Chris Brockway’s (Broc Cellars) Assistant Winemaker. When picked before the grape berries begin to shrivel, you get amazing hibiscus, rhubarb, pomegranate, and baking spices from Zin. Like an avocado, the window is small between unripe and overripe for Zin, and I watch our Zinfandel vineyards closely. Carignan, Zin’s less celebrated companion, provides a savory component reminiscent of driving through California chaparral, and, like Ricetti’s, can be incredibly complex with 70 years of vine age. I’m not re-inventing the wheel with this classic old vine Zin/Carignan blend, just lightening things up a bit.
