Texturally near perfect and brimming with fragrant dark fruit – blackberry, cherry, plum, ollalie berry compote, currant liqueur, clay, baked clay, fresh Provençale herbs, meatiness and minerals galore. This is a superb rendition of a classic Napa Valley red wine – showing all the attributes of the valley world renowned. Some years in the cellar will broaden the palate even further and add more grace notes to its already broad spectrum of aromas.
Robert Biale Zinfandel Like Father Like Son
For over seventy years beginning in 1937 the Biale family has grown Zinfandel and a variety of produce on their farm located on the outskirts of the town of Napa. A large population of white leghorn chickens once produced a steady supply of eggs that a young Aldo Biale regularly delivered around town to customers. Most of the Zinfandel grapes were sold to Napa wineries but some grapes were reserved so Aldo could make homemade wine for family and relatives. In 1953 Aldo met his future wife Clementina while on a trip to Italy where his mother, Christina was from. Aldo and Clementina were soon married and began raising their family in Napa in 1954.
