Zinfandel Vinegar

Zinfandel Vinegar

Description

Made from Zinfandel grapes from Sonoma County. The main difference between this and the Cabernet is that the Zinfandel is older and lighter in flavor. The Zinfandel also exhibits more musty quality and traditional old flavors of vinegar than the dark garnet color and more vine flavor of the Cabernet.

Applications/Techniques

Use in dressings, marinades, cold dishes; strong enough to stand up to assertive flavors.

History

Sparrow Lane Vinegars, located in Napa Valley, was founded in 1998 by current owners Phil and Denise Toohey. The vinegars are an all natural product, made exclusively with varietal wine grapes grown in Napa and Sonoma counties. The word vinegar itself stems from the French term 'vin aigre' or sour wine. The vinegars are made by the traditional method of aging in small oak barrels. Careful attention is given to the acid level of these vinegars to make them flavorful and approachable
