The high altitude vineyards and sandy clay loam soils yield a bold Old Vine Zinfandel, deep red in color, with rich, bright raspberry and strawberry tart along with a hint of earthiness which adds to its complexity. Medium to full bodied, the old vines impart elegant, intense tannins. The fresh fruit characteristics are balanced by lively acidity, hallmarks of the Sierra Foothills.

With a label inspired by the psychedelic rock posters of the 1960s, Zinfandelic captures the spirit of Zinfandel, California’s quintessential wine. The organically farmed old vine vineyards are located in Sierra Foothills, a region renowned for being home to some of the oldest Zinfandel vines in the world.


Zinfandelic's Sierra Foothills Old Vine Zinfandel wine makes an excellent food pairing choice for anything hot off the grill, such as grilled tri-tip steak. Try slicing up the steak and throwing it on top of a sourdough dinner roll.

"The nose is of juicy strawberries sprinkled with cayenne pepper. A pleasant note of red cherry and a slight minty character comes through on the palate adding complexity and lightness. A great wine for a BBQ."

"Dark violet color. Aromas and flavors of ripe plums and peaches, carob, whole peppercorns, and maple with a satiny, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, breezy finish with barky tannins and moderate oak. A gulpable Zinfandel for weeknight dinners."

Sierra Foothills Vineyard Sourcing

The Sierra Foothills, nestled against the Sierra Nevada mountain range in central California, is renowned for producing California's finest Zinfandels, some of them crafted from 19th-century vines. This organically farmed old vine vineyard is planted on hillsides with soils of sandy clay loam derived from decomposed granite. The warm days and cool evening breezes from the Sierra Mountains promote full ripening of the grapes and a balanced acidity, leading to robust, intensely flavored wines.
