Country + California Zinfandel

The Music

Essence: Stems from folk expressions of rural American South and West; a uniquely American form that found its greatest success crossing over with other popular styles; often romantic and melancholy

Listen: Patsy Cline, Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Taylor Swift

The Wine Style

Essence: Rustic, wild and all-American, California Zin embodies a unique style all its own. Boasting comforting flavors of wild berries and briary herbs, top pours also feature lush, silky notes and hints of vanilla. 

Drink: Kenwood 2011 Jack London Vineyard Zinfandel
