ZAP's mission is to spread the word about Zinfandel and its historic and cultural significance. ZAP has partnered with us to provide you with some truly special collections of Zinfandel that help you experience the range of this extraordinary grape.
Each collection captures a representative theme that demonstrates Zinfandels many styles, regional characteristics, and flavors. Collections feature a single bottle from six different vintners so you can compare styles of winemaking from some of your favorites while you explore new wineries and expand your Zinfandel horizons.
Old vines seem to make wines with unusual concatenations of flavors. The roots may penetrate deep into the earth, tapping into minerals not near the surface. The Old Vine Zinfandel Collection includes wines from six different regions, giving you the opportunity to taste the distinctly different flavors from both the terroir and these mature “granddaddy” vineyards.
(Zin Collection #2 offers single-vineyard designate Zinfandel).
