When Mike Grgich came to the Napa Valleyin 1958 to make wine, he noticed a remarkable resemblance between the Zinfandel and Plavac Mali of his native Croatia. Some 35 years later, Mike worked with scientists at University of California, Davis, to prove that Zinfandel was actually Crljenak Kaštelanski, a grape native to Croatia and parent of Plavac Mali.
Old World in style, this well-structured wine is rich in body with aromas and flavors of dried berries,plums and dark chocolate. Enjoy with grilled or cured meats, grilled fish such as salmon or tuna, hard cheeses and pizza.
