Crljenak Kastelanski (Zinfandel) comes to Amador Dan & Mary Hadley went to Croatia with a bottle of Deaver Zinfandel and traded with a Croatian wine maker for a bottle of Crljenak Kastelnski (Zinfandel). They actually live in Ohio and made their annual trek to Amador with the bottle from Croatia for us to try. Ken had a previous appointment and could not make it but the rest of us in the tasting room had the pleasure of tasting the wine. Our first observations were that the wine was 16.1% alcohol (high by European standards) and the label was very colorful and attractive. We opened the bottle and the wine was impressive. Dan and Mary had not tried the wine while over in Croatia and were very surprised (better than most they had the pleasure of trying while there). We saved the empty bottle so if you are interested in checking it out, visit the tasting room and ask us about it. Thank you again Dan and Mary for giving us the opportunity to try a Croatian Zinfandel.
