Grgich Hills 2009 Zinfandel Napa Valley


This highly respected winery is always a favorite of mine for its outstanding quality. This Zinfandel was yet another standout, and a very good value for the quality. Grgich farms its estate vineyards organically and biodynamically, and its Zin is grown in the northernmost part of Napa Valley in Calistoga. The philosophy at Grgich is to farm without chemicals or pesticides as their ancestors made wine in Croatia. This well-made Zinfandel tastes of black cherries and blackberries highlighted with notes of red berries, spice, and white pepper. Fabulous on its own but always best with food, try it with hearty meat lasagna, a meaty pizza, or steak Florentine style. It’s sold at BevMo!, or buy it online at for $35 retail.
