Joel Gott Zinfandel - California
Bottle size: 750ml
There isn't a vast number of Zinfandels imported into Australia from the US. Those that do make it to us are usually the best examples, offering easy-drinking, full-bodied red wines with plenty of power. Joel Gott Zinfandel is, in our opinion the pick of the bunch and recommended for those looking to dip a toe into American wine. Cheers Scott
Picked throughout California from Lodi, Russian River, Dry Creek, Mendocino, Amador (Shenandoah Valley) regions. The Joel Gott Zinfandel has aromas of raspberries, blackberries and blueberry jam. Dense and rich on the front of the palate with bright acidity on the mid-palate, and a long finish.
Zinfandel pairs great with Grilled red meats, cioppino, blackened fish with Cajun flavorings, ribs, grilled sausages, hearty winter dishes, stews, meat braises, heavy pasta dishes with stewed tomatoes and/or meat, eggplant, cassoulets, barbecue sauces, pepper, nutmeg, oregano, sage, bay leaf.
While running Palisades Market in Calistoga in the early 1990s, Joel Gott noticed a growing need for quality, value wines. Having worked at Kenwood Winery in Sonoma County, and with a family history in the business, Joel felt sure he could fill this void in the marketplace.
In 1996, Joel purchased a few tons of Zinfandel from family friend and grape grower Tom Dillian. With the help of then-girlfriend and winemaker at Joseph Phelps, Sarah. Joel produced his first vintage of Dillian Ranch Amador County Zinfandel. The wine received praise from Robert Parker and Wine Spectator, which was all the encouragement Joel needed to produce additional varietals.
