Tasting Notes:

A big, bold, rich Zinfandel like this pairs so well with grilled meats, perfect for this time of year as we squeeze out the last drops of summer. This is definitely a fall-style wine great for cooler weather. You'll want to exchange your favorite beer for this Zin while watching football.

Chiles Valley is located in the far northeast corner of Napa Valley. It is Zinfandel growing weather there; warmer due to its distance from the influence of San Pablo Bay at the south end of the valley. This wine has well-balanced 14.5% alcohol and a spiciness that will compliment ribs perfectly.  The palate also showcases blackberry, clove, black pepper, licorice, and mocha. While strong and powerful, it is at the same time balanced in tannins and finishes with a delicious candied fruit flavor.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This Zinfandel is meant to pair with grilled meats! Bold and spicy, it can be drunk alone, but will stand up beautifully to meat dishes and cut through fat, providing a perfect balance of flavors. It pairs well with BBQ pork ribs, roast leg of lamb, steak, Italian sausage, venison and brisket. Also try tomato based pasta dishes such as lasagna or spaghetti, beef stew or chili and cheeses such as Parmesan, aged Cheddar or Gouda, Asiago or Pepper Jack.
About the Winery
Maroon Wines Paul Maroon fell in love with wine country years ago, when he called on Napa Valley clients during his career in medical device sales. After forty years in sales and a growing respect for wine, Paul took a leap of faith and moved to Napa in 2000 to begin making wine. Learn more
