  • Recommended by Gabe Sasso - Snooth "Medley is a blend of the best vineyard lots and represents Alegria Vineyards as a whole. It’s composed of Syrah, Zinfandel, Cinsault, Sangiovese, Muscats, Viognier, Dolcetto, Alicante Bouschet, Petite Sirah, and more. Taken as a piece the ACORN wines are remarkably balanced, acid rich, food friendly offerings that age well. This vintage of Medley fits that bill to a tee. The nose resembles nothing more than a big bowl of fresh red fruits. The palate is stuffed with cherry and red currant as well as a host of spices. Vanilla bean, earth, mushroom, and sweet cocoa are all part of the finish. This wine is simply awesome. It’s fantastic now and will age well for at least a dozen years.”

  • Listed as one of the best Zinfandels from the 2017 ZAP Grand Tasting by Pierre DuMont of the Piedmont Post.
    "I've been a huge fan of this wine for years...This variety provides amazing aromatic and taste complexity. There are layers of blueberry, plum, spice box, earth and the perfect touch of vanilla. A fascinating wine to contemplate on it own..."

2013 Zinfandel ~ Heritage Vines

  • 91 points - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
    "This delicious, sexy style of Zinfandel offers loads of nuances, with plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant, underbrush, licorice and spice. It is peppery, rich and medium to full-bodied, but at the same time elegant and stylish.”
