    " In recent history Zinfandel was California's mystery grape because it's origins were unknown. DNA fingerprinting has confirmed that Itally's Primitivo and Crljenak Kastelanski, an ancient Croatian variety, are genenetically identical to Zinfandel Grapes. However, differences in vine vigor and cluster size distinguish Zinfandel from it's genetic twins, and further differences in cultivation, terroir and winemaking combine to give California Zinfandel its own particular flavor profile with a truly Amercian name, history and style.

    Studies indicate that the grape used for making california Zinfandel probably originated in Croatia. Historian believe that in the 1820's a nursery owner brought Zinfandel cuttings that were Croatian in origin to the United State from an Australian collection.

    Zinfandel was introduced to California during the gold rush somewhere between 1852 and 1857 and became widely planted because it thrived so well in the state's climate and soil. Today Zinfandel is the third leading wine grape variety in California"  - Cited from WineInstitute.org

    At Cantiga as with all the wine, the Zinfandel is European in style - medium bodied with bright acidity, clean resberry fruit and no residual sugar.
