There is a spicy, earthy nose and the aromas of dark fruits, raspberry and vanilla. There is great up front fruit with big flavors of black cherry, plum, chocolate and black pepper. This is a rich Zinfandel with good balance, chewy texture, nice acidity and a long, spicy finish.

Our 2018 Zinfandel has maintained our characteristics to produce Italian style Zinfandel. This wine is an elegant style of Zin, due to our blend of growing region and our winemaking style. We harvest grapes from Dry Creek Valley and Mendocino County with the goal to always balance the ripeness and acidity within the different lot. This balance explains Silvia Cellars Zin’s restaurant popularity; it is always a food friendly style of Zinfandel. We blended this Zinfandel with 8% of Dry Creek Valley Syrah for the perfect integration of flavor.
