Like clockwork and released only once a year, Biale Black Chicken Zinfandel has a cult-like following.

A comforting sipper on its own, this fantastic classic also pairs wonderfully with smoky barbecue, burgers, or hearty pasta. It is always a Top 100 contender.

Robert Biale, Black Chicken
Delicious Zinfandel That's Alway A Top 100 Contender!

— LIMITED QUANTITIES —

($41.95 per bottle / $503.40 per case) Prohibition may have created the demand, but great wine making created the legendary status of Robert Biale Vineyards.
     This is our fifth annual feature of this superstar. Released only once a year, Robert Biale Black Chicken is always a Top 100 contender and is one of the most sought after Zinfandels for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Whether you are a Ridge or Turley fan, the 2012 Black Chicken should be part of your collection!
    In the 1930's, the Biales were farmers who grew vegetables and raised chickens. During Prohibition, they became famous for their bootleg Zinfandel. Produce purchases were often accompanied by clandestine orders for "black chicken," code word for their delicious wine.
    Fast forward to today: The wines are truly delicious and the Biale Black Chicken is a standout boasting all the qualities and nuance that has made it famous year after year.
    Rich flavors of mixed warm berries, black cherries, round tannins, mulling spices, a touch of pepper and toasty vanilla engulf the palate. A comforting sipper on its own, this fantastic classic also pairs wonderfully with smoky barbecue, burgers, or hearty pasta.
