Occasional Wine Note: Robert Biale Vineyards are committed to preserving the long history and grandeur of California Zinfandel. Indeed, they've been producting outstanding Zins since 1937 and today over 25% of their vineyards are dedicated to Zin production. This offering is just a quintessential Zinfandel offering with lots of dark fruits with a good amount of spice mixed in. There are no critic ratings to be found for 2020 or 2021, but these have shown well year in and year with low to mid 90s scores and Vivino scores that bottom out at 4.2. This is a classic representation and one that we really love.

  • Winemaker Notes

    Showing the influence of the breezy and fog-laced Oak Knoll District, the 2021 vintage offers rich, plush fruit, delicate acidity and a structure defined by well-ripened tannins. Layered notes of black cherry, raspberry, sandalwood, bergamot, cloves, blueberry, and balsam on the nose. Delicate, yet rich with plum compote, violets, and baking spice on the palate. An ideal vintage of the Black Chicken that, with proper cellaring, will continue to improve for the next 5-7 years.
