Campus Oaks Zinfandel
Zinfandel is a variety of red grape planted in over 10 percent of California vineyards. DNA fingerprinting revealed that it is genetically equivalent to the Croatian grape Crljenak Kaštelanski, and also the Primitivo variety traditionally grown in the "heel" of Italy, where it was introduced in the mid 1800s. The grape found its way to the United States in the early 19th century, and became known by variations of the name "Zinfandel", a name of uncertain origin. Today this once unknown varietal produces some of the most intense, flavorful and reasonably priced red wines available.
