"
For a world that’s gotten used to jammy, ultraripe Zinfandel, this is a refresher course reminding us that Zinfandel made in a more restrained fashion can be fresh, exuberant and spicy. Foxglove is perennially a source of good values from the Central Coast of California. It’s the second label of Bob and Jim Varner, who make fine Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from the Santa Cruz Mountains."

    The 2015 Zinfandel is bright, refreshing and full of energy. Sweet red cherry fruit, floral notes and tobacco are all given an extra kick of aromatic and acid-driven brightness. Medium in body and lithe, the 2015 delivers serious quality for the money. The 2015 is 80% Zinfandel and 20% Petite Sirah. Don't miss it.
