Wine of the Day: Frank Family Zinfandel

Zinfandel can sometimes be a little all over the board, sometimes overly spicy and peppery, sometimes overly fruity, and jammy. When one is made with restraint, allowing the luscious character of the fruit to shine, without being overly extracted, I get very excited. Thankfully, this is the care Frank Family Vineyards gives to their wines, ensuring each selection made in their Napa Valley winery is varietally correct, balanced, showcasing the character of the fruit. Frank Family Zinfandel ($30) melds savory spice, blackberry, and black plum, revealing a full, rich palate that lingers long after the wine is finished.
