Zinfandel, Peter Franus, 75cl
With the release of their first wine in 1987, a Zinfandel, their goal has always been the same to produce delicious and reasonably priced wines that distinguish themselves from the ocean of wine in the marketplace. The wines they like to drink and the ones they seek to make are those with soul and personality. It is a very small operation and nearly all of the wines have a case level production of fewer than 1000 cases. The business has grown largely through word of mouth. The "Peter Franus Napa Valley Zinfandel" offers bright, deep aromas of blueberry jam, white pepper, and coffee accentuated by notes of the usual baking spices, clove, cinnamon, and allspice. The wine is mouth-filling and rich, but with the structure that holds the wine in check. With lots of classic Zinfandel berry character and a bit of chocolate, the wine is "friendly" and is sure to evoke quite a few smiles.
