2018 Robert Biale "Black Chicken" Zinfandel, Napa Valley 375ML


Back in the days of Prohibition, "Black Chicken" was the code word used by Aldo Biale's neighbors when they wanted to buy a jug of his homemade wine, instead of the fruit and vegetables he sold legally. Today, the Black Chicken is one of the iconic Napa Valley zinfandels, its brambly fruit character so rich that it's almost a meal in itself. Nonetheless, it will pair well with roasted game or grilled ribeye.
