Sin Zin is a California classic!
In 1978 Hank Wetzel produced our first vintage of Sin Zin and wine drinkers fell in love with the elegant, balanced flavors of Zinfandel from Alexander Valley Vineyards. Four decades later Sin Zin is still charming fans. Our 43rd vintage continues that tradition and to celebrate the richness of this wine, we’ve updated the label to full color.
The 2020 growing season enjoyed near-perfect growing conditions. The year began with unseasonably warm temperatures, and lower than normal rainfall. This was followed by weeks of steady daytime heat and cool evenings, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly. At harvest, the quality of the fruit was excellent with high acidity and intense flavors. Each lot was de-stemmed, fermented separately and then aged for 14 months in American oak barrels.
This vintage shows great color, enticing aromas and big flavors. In the glass there are loads of spicy, fruity aromas of dark fruits, blackberry, black cherry, black pep-per, oak and a hint of vanilla.
Sin Zin is a widely recognized California classic. This aromatic wine has a solid core of dark fruit with rich spicy flavors of black cherry and blackberry, topped with black pepper. Sin Zin is a luscious layered wine with great balance and a nice smooth finish.
