Oregon Zinfandel: Boutique, Rare, and Appellation-Specific
Zin Emerging in Pinot Country.
January 26, 2007
Zinfandel is not a grape which leaps to mind when you think of Oregon appellations. And for good reason: in 2005 a mere 52 harvested acres produced the state’s total Zinfandel output, the second smallest production of Oregon’s tracked varietals. But if you know where to look, varietal intense and appellation-differentiated Zinfandel wines can be found from a state not otherwise known as a haven for Zin.
