The latest from Gallo Family Vineyards is Carnivor California Zinfandel. Made using grapes from select Lodi vineyards, the wine was then aged on French and American oak until the tannins were softened and the wine structure was balanced. We blended Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to enhance the wine’s color and structure, and Merlot to give this wine a soft mouthfeel. This is a big wine, with a big personality.
The Carnivor Zinfandel is juicy, bold, big and flavorful, featuring hints of spice with a smooth touch for a complete palate. Intense dark fruit flavors of blackberry, plum and boysenberry are matched with notes of mocha, dark chocolate, black pepper and baking spice. Flavors of vanilla and toasted almond linger with a long, smooth finish.
