The name Truant describes someone who slips away from the confines of everyday routine, and also refers to our winemaking style which is not limited by geographical confines.
Crafted from Zinfandel fruit sourced in Lodi, Mendocino, Cucamonga Valley, Amador and Paso Robles, Truant blends a rebellious spirit with classic winemaking methods honed for decades.The result is a juicy, spicy, generous wine. Dark berry and spicy notes entice the nose, while ripe plum, blackberry and a touch of blueberry flavors entertain the taste buds. Juicy and structured, this wine is well balanced and has a long, velvety finish.
Truant and BBQ … a heavenly pairing! Try with Memphis style pulled pork, beer can chicken and smoked ribs.
