Zinfandel, ‘Black Chicken’, Robert Biale
The Black Chicken is named after the secret Prohibition call sign for wine when people would call Aldo Biale on the old “party line”. They would place their grocery order and ask for a “black chicken” as well. This Zinfandel is the flagship at Robert Biale Vineyards. Aged 14 months in 20% new French oak.
The nose is full of blackberries, vibrant black cherry, dried berries, maple, brown and black spices, cinnamon and gingerbread. The entry is soft and gives way to supple round tannins with a delectable center and persistence of fruit.
