more about Zinfandel
Christopher Creek Winery

2004 Zinfandel
Russian River Valley

The 2004 Russian River Zinfandel is the sixth vintage for Christopher Creek. We made this wine from grapes obtained from two nearby vineyards, both of which added to the complexity and taste of the wine. 70% of the grapes are from young but "old clone Zinfandel vines" and 30% from a two acre plot of 80+ year-old dry-farmed Zinfandel vines which have intermingled a few Alicante Bouschet and Carignane vines. The younger vines bring a subtle berry aroma and acidity, while the older vines add the structure, concentration and intensity. Although somewhat spicier as a result of the cooler Russian River climate, this wine exhibits ripe, jammy boysenberry, blackberry, prune and currant fruits with a full mouth feel and is perfectly balanced and approachable. Should easily age for 4-to-6 years.

Traditional Italian food would be complimented by this Primitivo-style wine, as well as chocolate desserts and Amaretto cakes.
