Tim Boatman began planting fifteen acres of zinfandel on the steep hillsides surrounding his house in 1972. The rocky, east-facing terraces produce intense, concentrated fruit. Learn more about Tim and his unique vineyard here.
FOOD: A beautiful complement to the 2014 Boatman Zinfandel is this Kansas City Baby Back Ribs recipe. In fact, this pairing was so good we featured it in our perfect regional barbecue pairings blog post.
OCCASION: Bring this wine to a casual dinner with friends or decant for a cozy evening in, alongside a savory, slow-cooked meal.
