Wine.comLong recognized for its superior red wine crop, the Jack London Vineyard produced its first Zinfandel in 1988. The climate conditions of this viticultural area, located on Sonoma Mountain, give a southeasterly exposure creating complexity and balance promoted by its long, cool growing season. The resulting fruitier characteristics, and the influence of the vineyards red volcanic soil, produce an excellent, very distinctive Zinfandel crop. The wild berry and black cherry flavors of this medium-bodied Zinfandel are a perfect complement to rich tomato sauce dishes, grilled fish and steak, and rich chocolate desserts.
