Check it Out: Cantiga Wineworks Zinfandel


Posted on February 13


I was surprised and delighted by a unique Zinfandel I tried recently while dining at a favorite restaurant in Truckee called Pianeta.

Cantiga Wineworks’ lovely, soft Herbert Vineyard Zinfandel was far from the bold, zesty, meal-in-a-glass Zinfandels you often encounter from El Dorado County.  It actually reminded me more of a Pinot Noir, with its light, elegant personality, bright, lush plummy-cherry flavors, and enticing fragrance with a hint of anise and pomegranate. Wonderfully drinkable and friendly, it was terrific with our pasta dishes – and I imagine it would pair very well with a wide array of red meat dishes. This is one local wine worth seeking out.

Guests were treated to food and drink from nearly 100 local eateries and bars. Other vendors auctioned off wares and services ranging from hand-woven free trade baskets to modern art work and vintage photographs. Proceeds from the event went to the charity’s mission of arranging experiences for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
