The Geerlings & Wade collection pays tribute to the Chateau relationships and the history behind the Geerlings & Wade brand, known for supplying great wine values from the best winemakers in the world. The blends are produced by a Napa Valley producer so legendary, we can't even name names but guarantee the quality in every drop. Our goal is to produce wines that demonstrate the expression of extraordinary vineyards located in Napa, Sonoma and the Central Coast each year into a wine blend of great quality and value. The diversity of our partner vineyards provides us wide stylistic options. Fruit from each component block is harvested, sorted, then gravity fed into either oak or stainless steel fermentation tanks. Once fermentation and maceration are complete, each block wine is aged for up to two years in French oak barrels in our partner caves until just the right time for release.
When we set out to create the first release of Geerlings & Wade Zinfandel, it was important that we create a wine accessible in style with a flavor profile that would appeal to fruit-loving palettes. Mission accomplished!
The 2008 Geerlings & Wade Zinfandel is exclusive to Winetasting.com and boasts a soft, fruit-forward style full of raspberry and subtle baking spices. It is soft and lush in the mouth and a wonderful wine to sip alone or to pair with a wide range of foods including pizza, pasta, steak and spicy dishes.
