2014

Alexander Hamilton was a man of many curiosities and talents. In his spirit, our classic Zinfandel embraces the uniquely American tradition of aging in charred bourbon barrels. Sourced from Mendocino County, The Federalist Bourbon Barrel-Aged Zinfandel marries intense raspberry and black pepper with vanilla, a touch of clove spice and rich caramel.
