The bid to name Zinfandel California's "State Varietal" may have failed, but when California secedes and commences its search for the Official Wine of the Californian Republic? This may be the bottle we put on President Clooney's desk . From the oldest patch of Zinfandel on the Preston property, this is as good a bottle of Preston Zinfandel that we've tasted. Biodynamic farming, a splash of Carignan and a splish of Mourvedre all go a long way. This is classic Dry Creek stuff with gorgeous black plum & raspberry fruit, dusty tannins, and scrumptious baking spices. Long live the Republic!
