Paso Robles, known for its extreme heat, stark soils and chilly nights, is an excellent growing region for Zinfandel. Our vineyards are between 30 to 70 years old, each yielding only a few clusters with small, intensely flavored berries which lead to an elegant and complex wine.
Bold and daring with a touch of roughness around the edges…presenting The Biker Zinfandel. Hailing from the west side of Paso Robles, ground zero for top notch zin, The Biker is full of wild berry and layers of spice.
The 2017 Four Vines The Biker Paso Robles Zinfandel begins with jammy aromas of blackberry and black raspberry but that's not all -- you'll also find spice, black pepper, licorice, bramble, sweet oak and vanilla. In other words, there's a whole lot for your nose to discover in this one.
Tasting reveals a lush, bold and spicy wine, just the way I like it. There's lots of jammy fruit as you would expect, but many of the other flavors from bouquet also carryover like black pepper, licorice and plenty of spice. All this goodness is wrapped up in a smooth, silky and almost chewy texture. It ends dry and spicy with long-lasting vanilla and caramel notes. This wine is crying out to be paired with meat drenched in BBQ sauce.
