Wine Pick of the Week: Kivelstadt KC Labs Zin

Our pick of the week is the 2019 Kivelstadt Cellars KC Labs Zin. Produced through natural fermentation, resulting in a
softer, lighter, fresher expression of California Red Zinfandel.


KC Labs, Kivelstadt Cellars’ experimental side project,
is all about bucking the traditions of California wine,
and there’s no better example than this Zinfandel.


The fruit is grown at Venturi Vineyard in Mendocino,
and is harvested early then allowed to ferment carbonically
without being crushed. This process allows what is normally
a jammy, tannic, and high-alcohol variety and turn it into
a light, fresh summertime wine.
