Zin is a unique beast among grape types. While most grape varieties see a drop in fruit quality as they move into old age, Zinfandel vines just keep getting better over the decades—and even well past the century mark. That’s why so many old-vine plantings in California from as far back as the mid-1800s—are still in production and highly sought after.
Our fruit sources for Beran include new vineyards along with old-vine plantings that deliver the bright fruit and berry character of classic Zin. Our Zinfandels don’t have too much structure and tannin. We don’t think Zins should. Instead, our wines satisfy with fruit, spice and an unctuous, rich roundness that makes them easy to drink.
