Zinfandel is a versatile wine produced almost exclusively in California, where some vines are more than 100 years old. Zinfandel is a full-bodied wine capable of long aging with full tannins. Zinfandel can also be made into a light style, slightly sweet wine called White Zinfandel. A Port style wine is sometimes produced from the Zinfandel grape.
