2020 Kivelstadt KC Labs Zinfandel | Mendocino, CA

Identical to the Italian grape Primitivo, but American through and through. Zinfandel is one of the only grapes that is associated with the United States. Although it’s generally considered bold and jammy, a new generation of California winemakers are employing different techniques, including carbonic maceration, to make a light, chillable wine that is fresh and playful. Kivelstadt’s winemaker Sam Baron is doing exactly this, making a bright and fruity Zinfandel that is the perfect red wine for warm summer nights.
