Perfecting the old California classics, Robert Biale Vineyards has become a revered standard of heritage vineyard Zinfandel and Petite Sirah in Napa Valley. The Biale Founders have cherished the tradition of historic old vines (some dating to the 1880s!) and prize the small quantity of concentrated and intense fruit that they produce. Diligent farming, expressive terroir, and superb elegance are the winery’s hallmarks.
Party Line is a throwback to the old days of Zinfandel when California’s wine-growing families made wine for every-day consumption. In old Napa, a teenaged egg and produce farmer named Aldo Biale employed the code name ‘black chicken’ on the neighborhood party line phone system to keep his bootleg jugs of homegrown and homemade Zinfandel a secret from neighbors and authorities. Vibrant and versatile, Robert Biale Vineyards’ Party Line is a fully legal classic Zinfandel from vineyards within California’s North Coast region.
The 2021 Party Line Zinfandel is a fun and lighthearted red wine that is made to enjoy now. Generous aromas of raspberry and strawberry along with hints of baking spice fill the glass. Round and rich on the palate with notes of black cherries and plum, the wine finishes with fine-grain tannins.
