The low-yielding 2013 is perhaps the most concentrated vintage seen in a generation – and it’s got Zinfandel lovers licking their lips.  The 2013’s overwhelm the best of previous vintages with torrential flows of jammy fruit – but also toothsome, chewy structure.  For those who like their Zins big enough for steak, Grand Napa has you covered – their Zin tastes like it was crossbred with Cab!  

About the wine

Much-loved for their remarkable sub-appellation series of Cabernets, Grand Napa is now carving out acclaim with their powerful and polished Zinfandel.  Showing all the sumptuous, even syrupy fruit of the 2013 vintage, it’s a hedonistic style that has been treated more like a Cabernet than a typical Zin.  So it has more backbone and a nicely complementary oak regimen that make it a candidate for short-term aging – not that anyone is going to want to wait to knock back the great 2013 wines!  Let’s pass the mic over to Mr. Parker for more on the significance of this season: “This could turn out to be one of the most epic and awesome vintages the North Coast of California has ever produced. The wines are more tightly coiled and present themselves with more closed personalities than their 2012 counterparts, but they are by no means inaccessible. They are powerful, rich and concentrated, extremely well-delineated, and will be extremely long-lived, eclipsing even the aging potential of the 2012s."

About the vineyards 

Grand Napa’s cherry picked killer fruit all over Napa. This has enabled them to match the best attributes of high elevations (deep dark color but savage tannins) with the richer soil of the lowlands (plump, jammy fruit and sweet licorice accents). Blended together, and you get a deliciously full-featured Zinfandel showcasing the best attributes of the 2013 vintage.

About the winemaker, Dwight Bonewell

From walking the fields during the vine’s dormant winters to the packing of cases, Dwight Bonewell has his hands in every step of the process at Grand Napa.  Some would call this micromanaging but ultimately, it’s what separates the mediocre wineries from the ambitious.  Carefully following the vine from budbreak to bloom and veraison to harvest, Dwight beings to prepare his battle plan for when the fruit comes in: full destemming, small batch fermentations and a thoughtful barrel regimen in French oak that enhances the wine with secondary notes without over-extracting tannin.

"The 2013 Grand Napa Zinfandel is a monster! This beastly Napa Red is multifaceted showing deep purples and dark red fruits.... ripe brambly berries, red crisp cherries, crisp plum, lavender, leather, and soft balanced spices. The wine leans dry with tannins however finishes mouthwatering and savory- An age worthy mastercrafted Napa Zin! Drink (2016-2025+)."

93-95 pts - Brian Whitaker, Sommelier/GM

"Dark bramble berries on the nose are wrapped by fine oak and firm acidity. Ripe raspberry, black cherry, earth, flower, and allspice emerge to layered black plum and fig. Recommended Pairing: Flatbread Pizza with Caramelized Onion, Blue Cheese, Figs, and Balsamic."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
