2016 Robert Biale Vineyards Black Chicken Zinfandel | Napa Valley California 750ml

It all started in the 1940's when 14 year-old Aldo Biale helped his mother to make ends meet by selling to insider Napans - along with eggs and produce - some of the family's homemade Zinfandel. Over the old "party line" phone system, the code words "a Black Chicken" signified a jug of bootleg wine...and kept nosy neighbors and the authorities from finding out about Aldo's underground Zinfandel operation.

The Oak Knoll winegrowing region is prevalent in this wine with its dark color, ripe aromatics and juicy acidity. The nose is full of vibrant black cherries, dried fig, pomegranate, wild black berry, fresh dark flowers, subtle dried herb, toasty brown spices and fruit cake. The entry is soft and weighty and gives way to supple, round tannins. | Biale
