The Prisoner Wine Company's 2019 Saldo Zinfandel
Dark ruby color with bold aromas of black licorice, black pepper, cherry, and baking spice. The entry is rich, full, and scintillating. The palate is mouthwatering and smooth with a hint of chocolate. The finish is voluptuous with soft, velvety tannins.
Blend: 85% Zinfandel; 15% Blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah
Saldo sources grapes from California’s finest and most renowned Zinfandel regions and American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), including Dry Creek, Sierra Foothills, Sonoma Valley, The Talmage Bench in Mendocino, Lodi, and the Moon Mountain District of Sonoma County. Some of our carefully selected vineyards include Mattern, Aparicio, Teldeschi, Grist, Taylor, and Bismark Mountain Vineyard.
“I’m fascinated by the history of Zinfandel in California. The old vine vineyards and the generations of families dedicated to growing and preserving these historic vines makes Zinfandel a truly special variety.”
—Chrissy Wittmann, Winemaker
