Appellation: Columbia Valley

Winemaker Richard Batchelor continues a long tradition of superior red Zinfandels at this destination winery in the Columbia Gorge. This offers aromas of raspberry syrup, light oak and dark chocolate. On the palate, this is a rich, delicious wine with flavors of black cherry, ripe raspberry and elegant spice. Velvety tannins give way to a luscious finish. This won a unanimous double gold medal at the Great Northwest Wine Competition. (14.8 percent alcohol)

Cases produced: 2,157

Food pairing: Zinfandel is a versatile red wine for pairing with food. Try it with lamb, ribs, turkey, lasagna, chili or Italian sausage.
