Tasting Notes

Carbonic Zinfandel is certainly not your typical California Zinfandel. A far cry from the heavy, jammy, and hot stereotype, this is refreshing and delicious. Sourced from the Baldinelli Vineyard in Shenandoah AVA, the soils are sandy loam. Fermentation lasts 21 days before aging in tank for 8 months. It is brimming with bright fruit, acidity, and a fermented herbaceous note. Pair with Bratwurst on the grill.
