What lies beneath ...

The last time I went into the cellar, I ran face-first into a cob web so NO THANKS.

Drink this wine: if someone brings it up from the cellar for you.

Don't drink this wine: if you have to retrieve from its spot amongst the creepy old baby carriage and the porcelain doll with the eyes that can pierce your soul.

Left to its own devices, this wine: will haunt your dreams.

Some skeptics wonder: if wine will ever make blood transfusions obsolete.

In a tell-all biography, it was revealed that this wine: was once a man.

Legend has it that when the moon is full, this wine transforms into: Kitt from Knight Rider.

2012 Vinum Cellars Zinfandel 750ml 6-Pack

The color of this medium bodied, spicy Zinfandel is light plum with brick red edges. The aromas are immediately spicy with black and white pepper and follows with light caramel toast notes. The palate is lively with crushed berry fruit: raspberry, blackberry and huckleberry flavors. On the finish the wine expresses itself with rich plum and ripe cherry and folds into cinnamon, and vanilla matrix which follows with ample acidity and juicy strawberry, cherry fruit.

What I love about this wine is its ability to recall its varietal character while remaining balanced. It’s not at all over extracted or alcoholic; simply put it’s a nice bistro red, a Monday through Thursday wine that reduces the possibility of a hang over (and an empty wallet). We sourced the grapes from Paso Robles, an AVA well known for producing high quality Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and other big reds and this wine is a fine example at an affordable price. The wine was barrel aged for 18 months in French and American oak. While approachable now, it will age well through 2020.

Vinum Cellars is a small California Winery well known for producing wines of the highest quality. The grapes are selected from premium coastal and cool climate growing areas within California. The wines are made by hand in small batches to allow the varietal character of each wine to express itself. This wine pairs well with Cowboy steaks, homemade fried or spit roasted chicken or roasted duck and will also pair famously with wild Salmon, grilled over mesquite and served with a béarnaise sauce.

Serve with sautéed garlicky green beans and buttermilk whipped potatoes.

Winery Details

Vinum Cellars

Founded:
1997
Owners:
Richard Bruno, Chris Condos
Location:
Napa, CA
Vinum Cellars is a collaboration of winemakers Richard Bruno and Chris Condos, who first became friends while they were students at UC Davis. They share a long standing passion for Chenin Blanc and fondness for the more obscure grape varieties.
 
After graduation, Chris went to work for Pine Ridge as Enologist, and Richard went to Bonny Doon as their distiller. Shortly after, their friendship was solidified over Chenin Blanc with the creation of their first wine "Pointe Blanc". Currently the Vinum Cellars team is working with over 14 grape varieties from El Dorado and San Benito Counties to Napa Valley.
 
Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach.
 
As an environmentally conscious company, Vinum Cellars works only with sustainable growers to create Eco-Friendly products. The packaging choices were made specifically to minimize their carbon footprint. Some of those features are: Domestically produced light weight, Eco-Series glass; labels and cartons using only non-toxic, water based inks and each of these suppliers recycles 100% of the waste created by manufacturing our packaging.
