2018 BIALE R.W. MOORE VINEYARD ZINFANDEL

Dedicated to advancing and preserving California Zinfandel, if you’re looking for classic Zin, look no further than Robert Biale, where it all began in the 1940s with Aldo Biale selling wine over a party-line phone system. A “black chicken” served as a code word for a jug of bootleg Zinfandel and is now the winery’s flagship wine and a benchmark for the varietal.

One of the winery’s highest-scoring Zinfandels comes from the historic R.W. Moore Vineyard in Coombsville’s center, planted in 1905 and part of the U.C. Davis Heritage Vineyard project, where genetic material is studied and preserved. Cooling influences from the San Pablo Bay keep the grapes from developing overripe, jammy fruit characteristics, producing a brighter, more balanced Zinfandel, brilliantly portrayed in the 2018 vintage.

2019 ROBERT BIALE BLACK CHICKEN NAPA VALLEY ZINFANDEL

The Biale family has deep roots in Napa Valley agriculture, and their flagship Black Chicken Zinfandel is an absolute classic. The story of how the wine got its name is as rich and intriguing as the wine itself. In the 1940s, the Biale’s were also poultry farmers, but had a multiparty phone line. To stay incognito with their wine sales, customers would call and ask for a dozen eggs and a Gallo Nero or Black Chicken, which was the code-word for a jug of Aldo Biale’s homemade Zin. Fast-forward some 80 years later, and the Black Chicken Zinfandel deserves the reputation they’ve earned for its relentless quality.

The Biale’s source the iconic Black Chicken Zinfandel grapes from the same vineyard that they’ve farmed for generations. This vineyard is in Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll district. The region has complex soils and a micro-climate that’s one of the coolest in Napa Valley, producing gorgeous fruit with incredible character.

2018 ROBERT BIALE ROYAL PUNISHERS PETITE SIRAH

The two grape varieties crossed to create Petite Sirah are Pelousin and Syrah, and Robert Biale’s Royal Punishers got its name from scrambling the letters of both parent grapes. This deep, inky, and powerful red, is appropriately named and deserves its reputation as one of Napa Valley’s top Petite Sirahs.

Robert Biale sources his Royal Punishers Petite Sirah from Carpy-Connolly Ranch in Rutherford. The well-drained gravel and sandy loam soils, and warm daytime temperatures are ideally suited for ripening Petite Sirah grapes.

The wine team harvested the 2017 vintage in late September, a couple of weeks before the wildfires, and the fruit first was sorted in the vineyard by hand, and again at the winery, keeping only the best berries. They performed punch-downs three times each day during maceration, extracting an incredibly deep, inky color, which is a hallmark of this wine.

The region has complex soils and a micro-climate that’s one of the coolest in Napa Valley, producing gorgeous fruit with incredible character.

The 2018 vintage was a faultless growing season, that was virtually uninterrupted by significant heat spikes, providing a prolonged hang-time, allowing the fruit to accumulate intense flavor and complexity. The resulting wine is penetrating, deep and supple, with laser definition and a mouth-quenching elegance that’s a hallmark for the wine.
