Beran California Zinfandel is a true representation of what Zinfandel can offer with the ripeness of the warmer regions and brightness from cooler regions. Grapes picked at optimum ripeness combined with extended fruit maceration over 30 days at times then laid to rest for 12 months in a combination of American and French oak has created a flavor-packed, easy-drinking zin with a soft, supple mouthfeel and balanced acidity. Zinfandel is one of the most expressive and distinctive grape varieties and when made well should continue to evolve and improve in the bottle.

Smoky, sweet cedar vanillin notes, cassis, cranberry, sweet tobacco, and cooked dark fruits like warm Blackberry pie.
Flavors of red licorice, dried cherry and ripe dark berry fruits are complexed with hints of sweet tobacco, a slight dustiness.
