2008 Zort

Vineyard del Sol

Rattlesnake Hills, Yakima Valley, Washington

Alc 19%


The Back Label:


Zort?!? Yes! A Ruby Angelica wine based on our Zinfandel grapes. This very limited production is meant to be consumed with friends — and a raspberry-infused chocolate truffle — or a pear with Stilton cheese — as an aperitif with salted nuts — or in front of a fire on a howling winter night while releasing its captive sunshine.


Its spicy and bramble fruit and spicy aromatics evoke summer in the berry patch with your lover.


A wine for bed?


More information from the winegrower:




We can’t legally call it Port. Rule changes—no more American Port.


So it is a Ruby Angelica—the American equivalent to a Ruby Port. Made mostly with Zinfandel.


Inspired by a great day being tutored by Brother Timothy at The Christian Brothers Winery learning about blending port-style wines made mostly from Zinfandel. “Playing” with 23 wines to make 3 final wine types.


So, in salute to Brother Timothy!
