Gamba Zinfandel Family Ranches 2012

Sourced from several sites in the heart of the Russian River Valley, the grapes are vinified in our traditional style; with an extended soaking period. The vineyard lots were fermented on the natural indigenous yeasts, each lot fermented separately to highlight the distinctive characteristics and unique distinct flavor profiles of this world famous growing region. Dark ruby-garnet in color, this classic Russian River Zinfandel shows aromas of boysenberry, raspberry, brown spices, and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, the Family Ranches Zinfandel is balanced with excellent acidity: a powerful, rich and concentrated wine, with flavors of nectarine, cherry and raspberry that build through the lingering finish. This lovely wine can be enjoyed now, and will continue to develop with bottle age over the next several years.

Black Oak White Zinfandel 2019

The Black Oak White Zinfandel is a wonderful warm weather sipper. This is sometimes called our ‘hammock wine’ for lazy days by the river.

Lovely perfume aromas that remind one of ripe melons, honeysuckle in summer, and cherry blossoms in spring. The flavors are bright and delicately sweet, with a very good balance of fresh acidity that lightens up the complex texture. The succulent flavors are of juicy tangerine, white peaches and just picked strawberries. All this with an additional hint of lemon-lime and sass that make this a very approachable and fun wine selection.

Product Description

Madrigal Family Zinfandel 2010 come from these vineyards:
46% Madrigal Estate Vineyard
31% Salisbury Vineyard
23% Johnson Vineyard

THE VINTAGE: 2010 harvest started with a very late bud break due to wet and cool spring weather. The growing season was also very cool and promoted conditions for mildew that we constantly fought, and late bud break further delayed harvest. The cool, wet weather also affected the set of the crop to less than normal. We finally harvested our Zinfandel about 3 weeks later than normal; smaller clusters with a little uneven ripening and a little sunburn. Thank God for the sorting table!

APPEARANCE: Clear and bright with a deep concentrated ruby color, that lightens only slightly at the wine edges.

NOSE: The nose that of a potent young wine, showing a rich candied red fruit character of fraise and maraschino cherry, with hints of sandalwood, black pepper corns and allspice.

PALATE: This is a big wine in terms of mouth feel and fruit. The first flavors are dominated by big, candied red fruit, which confirms the impressions offered up on the nose and almost makes you think there is a touch of sweetness - really ripe red cherries and the sweetest of tiny, wild strawberries, balanced with a light touch of oak and a subtle hint of black pepper. The finish is balanced, long & persistent, with the rich fruit character evening out the more than ample alcohol. The finish is crisp with bright acidity, leaving the mouth salivating and wanting more.

NOTES: Easy to enjoy while cooking and with the meal. Pair with burgers, BBQ baby-back ribs, bone-in pork chops; perfect with pepperoni pizza for a quick, easy meal.

The Madrigal Family Winery Estate

Since the late 1930's, three generations of the Madrigal family have farmed some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyards. The family history is a constant source of inspiration, and guides us in our wine making now. We value the long relationship we've had with the land and the people here, believing that the combined wisdom of the folks who’ve been here for generations and a deep appreciation of these vineyards can be tasted in our wine.

Today, the company is run by Chris Madrigal, the founder's grandson. Our winemaker is the acclaimed Ed Sbragia, who built his reputation over 30 years of winemaking in the Napa, Sonoma and Dry Creek Valleys. Ed’s wines have won awards for years and he’s proud of the reputation he’s earned. “I just do what I love and work with the gifts of the land,” said Ed. “All with a passion and pride passed down through generations at home.”

Chris' grandparents left Mexico in the late 1930's and arrived in the Napa Valley where they began farming apples, pears, walnuts and grapes. They were one of the first, if not the first, Mexican family in the upper valley. Chris' father, Jess, early on chose to focus on wine and started the family's vineyard management business. Today, that company manages over 800 acres.

Chris' passion for winemaking inspired him to establish Madrigal Family Winery. In 1995, Madrigal Family Winery produced its first vintage of 500 cases of Petite Sirah

As a member of the 3rd generation of the Madrigal family, Chris continues the family's commitment to excellence and its legacy of developing outstanding vineyards and award-winning wines.

Chris ultimately attributes the family’s success to a strong work ethic. He also believes that luck has its hand in the equation. “I always say sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. I like being good and a lot of the things that have happened in our life has been a result of working hard; but if there wasn’t luck involved with it or if we weren’t at the right place at the right time, our story could be drastically different. Be it luck or hard work, the Madrigal dream is alive and well!
