Sun, Deck Dining, an Open Bottle

What a FABULOUS way to start off a Friday evening…the sun was out, the air was warm, the smells of fine Italian food filled the air. And we brought a bottle of 2008 Saldo Zinfandel.

The wonderful aromas filled the air as the wine was poured into my glass. I instantly knew I would like this sip! From the moment it touched my first taste bud to the well after I swallowed, the flavors just layered on. Fruity, a bit spicy, all yummy! It tasted wonderful with the brushetta, the calamari, and the gnocchi!

Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Saldo is rich, ripe, and full-bodied, with aromas of black cherry and bramble fruit. The tannins are soft but the wine has a huge mid-palate. The soft, lush finish lingers. 2008 was a perfect vintage for Saldo. The hot weather was ideal for creating ripe zinfandel. Drink now and enjoy over the next five years.
