Zinfandel - (Zin-fahn-DELL)

Declared the American wine grape because it reaches its highest level in California, it's now been shown to be the same as the Southern Italian Primitivo, and it's thought that both may go back to an earlier Balkan progenitor. At its best, it makes an exuberantly fruity, ripe and big red wine full of mixed blackberry and raspberry scents (known botanically as "bramble fruit").
