About this Wine:

At Oakville Winery we strive to produce wines that represent our land and its heritage. Our 2008 Zinfandel exhibits flavors of rich berries and black cherry, along with hints of spice such as pepper, anise and licorice. On the palate this Zinfandel is medium bodied with soft tannins. It is supple, well balanced and has a delicious lingering taste. In the glass the wine is a brilliant cranberry juice color. A food friendly style, this wine will pair well with pork chops, pork medallion with fruit sauce, a chocolate dessert with raspberry sauce, and poached pear.

Ratings & Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2007 vintage):
"Oakville’s 2007 Zinfandel (high priced real estate for Zinfandel) is fresh, briery, and peppery with spicy, berry fruit, not a great deal of complexity, but medium body, and more restraint and elegance than one normally gets from this grape. Drink it over the next several years. Two thousand seven has shaped up as a very fine vintage for almost every varietal in California, including the much-maligned Zinfandel." - Robert Parker (Dec 2009)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2007 vintage):
"Soft and melted and ultraripe in fruity sweetness, almost like a Starbucks drink, this Zin has flavors of chocolate mocha, raspberry purée, cherry liqueur, anise, vanilla and smoky cedar wood. It’s made in the modern Napa style. Drink now." - S.H.  (6/1/2009)
