In 2012, Cigar Zin was re-launched in partnership between Deutsch Family Wine and Spirits and Vintage Wine Estates producers of premium California wines. Cigar Zin is an elegant blend of 90% Zinfandel, 5% Petit Sirah, and 5% Syrah. Grapes are hand harvested and sorted at peak season to ensure quality and flavor, and the wine is aged for 11 months in French and American oak barrels. The striking packaging is reminiscent of a cigar band, which speaks to the desire to remain sophisticated and masculine while stepping outside the boundaries to escape the mundane. Cigar Zin is the perfect wine for steak dinners, outdoor barbeques, or a typical Tuesday night.
Spicy and a tad smoky. Full, but not heavy or full of tannins. Easy drinking alone or with food.
Berry beginning fading to a spicy and wonderfully smokey note
Spicy and full bodied, jammy, best with food
One of our favorites from Cosentino!
Perfect with a cigar
