2012 Zinfandel- an all time favorite

Our 2012 Zinfandel has been a huge hit with our guests since its release in February of  2015, so much so that we recently re-released it to our Wine Club! Fans love the classic ‘jam and baking spice aromas’ that winemaker Chad Joseph describes in this crowd-pleasing, quintessential Zinfandel. Its lush mouthfeel and smooth structure have only enhanced with time in the bottle. Tori Nunez, our Assistant Wine Club Manager, has loved this wine since day one!

“It’s my favorite because of how easy drinking it is! It is always consistent and is my favorite go-to wine for relaxation!”

Although Tori enjoys the 2012 Zinfandel best by itself, she will happily pair it with BBQ chicken prepped in the crockpot and piled on a fresh bun. Other favorite pairings include Zinfandel and sticky BBQ beef ribs or with honey mustard chicken on a bed of greens. This ultra-approachable Zin can hold up to a variety of foods or, in Tori’s case, with no food at all. Check out our Harney Lane’s Pinterest board ‘Zinfandel Friendly Foods’ for more delicious pairing ideas!

Starting part-time as a weekend helper and expert wine pourer, Tori has excelled in her role, becoming our first Assistant Wine Club Manager as a full-time employee. Her passion for customers is evident in her daily interactions and the relationships that she forms with our guests. It’s safe to say that Tori’s personality and sense of humor are unparalleled.

“Harney Lane truly means it when we say that you are ‘part of the family!’” Next time you stop in, visit Tori and enjoy chatting over some 2012 Zinfandel.
