It all started after we saw the incredible review from Robert Parker 

We weren't really familiar with this winery so we picked up the phone and started to investigate. After months of working ... today is the day we are thrilled to introduce it to all of you!

Not only did Parker rave over this, our entire buying team flipped after tasting it for the first time. In addition, the fact that the holiday season is right around the corner, makes this an even bigger buy. This is a no-brainer buy by the case and one of the best Thanksgiving buys of the season!!

If you think there is nothing more American than apple pie… consider this one: Zinfandel. While Zinfandel as a variety may trace its roots back to the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, there’s nothing distinctly like California Zinfandel.

If you’re looking for a great red wine for this holiday, you’re welcome. This amazing under-the-radar Zinfandel is everything you want in a Thanksgiving red with a bonus 91-point Parker score and a price of $20 or less per bottle.

Robert Parker himself raved with a huge 91 Point score.  
"I think this is the first time I’ve had a good look at these wines, and I’m impressed." - Robert Parker

As many of you know, there are several writers who write for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate today. This wine, however, was rated by Robert Parker himself!

Back in March of this year, Robert Parker released Part III of his Northern California report. In the introduction to his ratings, Parker notes that, “Sonoma is a treasure trove of fabulous Zinfandel.” He shared his excitement, too, about the 2014 offerings. Overall, the 2014 vintage of California’s North Coast Zinfandel earned 92 points from the Wine Advocate.

With a 91-point score, the 2014 Saini Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley (see full review below) bested popular favorites from the same vintage, including the 2014 Seghesio with an 89-point score and same suggested retail price. Parker admits that, like you, he wasn’t too familiar with the estate, noting that he hadn’t really given this small winery much notice before. And now that he has, well… all we can say is: secure your bottles now. You may hear more about Saini in the years to come. Just take a look at his review below:

"The 2014 Zinfandel Dry Creek has briary fruit, not quite the density of the 2013s, but beautiful berry fruit, especially raspberries and black cherries, medium to full body, and again, stunning purity. I think this is the first time I’ve had a good look at these wines, and I’m impressed. Drink this one over the next 5-6 years. It is likely to be shorter-lived than the 2013s." - Robert Parker

What do we look for in a Thanksgiving wine?

This offer couldn’t have come at a better time: The Big Day is Just Around the Corner

1. Well, its got to be delicious. First and foremost, the palate has got to be soft and silky, the fruit ripe and bold, the wine just a well-balanced bottle of goodness.


2. It should be a crowd-pleaser, something everyone will love because you know everyone will be knocking down the door for your killer stuffing.


3. It should be affordable, less than $30 at least. See point #2.


4. Bonus point: If, when your friends or family look up this wine to check out what great taste you have, they find a 91-point score from Robert Parker. As “impressed” as Parker was with this wine, that’s how impressed your Thanksgiving guests will be with you.


Whether you are hosting, visiting or even just staying home for Gobble Gobble Day, the holiday calls for a beautiful wine like this one. California Zinfandel is distinctly American, just like Thanksgiving Day and grandma’s apple pie. While Zinfandel might not work so well alongside said pie, it does great on the table with everything from turkey to sweet potato casserole and might just even go with a restrained pumpkin pie.

Bursting with bountiful berries, this is a gorgeous bottle of red wine. Not only does Robert Parker think so. And not only does our wine team think so. Your entire Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving) party will agree. Soft and silky with bold fruits and lively freshness, there’s nothing but wonderful things to love about this Zinfandel.

Limited production. Hard to find. Worth the search.
Just over 900 cases of this wine were produced. We are beyond thrilled we found some

Saini is a small Sonoma estate, and the wines are mainly available through the winery itself. The estate is founded on the partnership of two families. The Saini family has been growing grapes in Sonoma for over 90 years. The Christie family has long worked in the wine industry. Two friends, George Christie and Mike Saini, combined their skills and passions, and in 2008, Saini Vineyards became reality.

Production at this friend-and-family-operated estate is miniscule by world wine standards. They made less than 1000 cases of this wine in 2014 and 2013 and only 400 in 2012.

Bottom line: you won’t find this Zinfandel everywhere, but you can find it here. Trust us, you’ll be glad you found it.
