Robert Biale Zinfandel Old Kraft

Robert Biale Zinfandel Old Kraft

Fragrant, fruit-packed and luxurious on the palate, the 2012 Old Kraft Vineyard Zinfandel is perhaps our favorite vintage – so far. Gentle tannins, rounded edges and an array of blackberry, black cherry, black tea, plum preserves, warm stones, shoe leather, and brown spice notes evolve in the glass and promise a bright and long future in the bottle.

Winery/Brewery Info

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.
