Acorn 2011 Heritage Vines Alegria Vineyards Zinfandel (Russian River Valley)

This is one of those Zinfandels that needs food. On its own, it's a rustic wine, sweet in red jam and raisins, tannic, acidic and fairly oaky. It has considerable complexity, coming from a century-old vineyard that contains at least a dozen grape varieties barely grown anymore in California. Will be excellent with any form of beef stew, short ribs, Mexican beef-centered food, or a lusty lasagna.
