Rooted in the independent California spirit, Bear Flag Sonoma County Zinfandel is a true original. Our winemaker harnesses the wild, untamed Zinfandel vines the region is known for and crafts a bold wine that is full of character and unrelenting flavor.
Structured and full-bodied, Bear Flag Zinfandel has spicy character complemented by jammy, dark fruit flavors reminiscent of blueberry pie. Notes of toasted oak and vanilla combine to create a plush mouthfeel and lingering finish.
The majority of our grapes are sourced from the Dry Creek Valley, one of the most renowned Zinfandel growing areas in California. The Dry Creek Valley’s daytime heat and cool, calm nights enable Zinfandel to develop bold fruit characteristics along with hints of spice and complexity that is unique to the region. Additional Zinfandel and Petite Sirah from iconic vineyards above Sonoma Valley was added to the final blend, adding dark fruit character and balanced structure.
