What's Pairing with Dinner Tonight?
2007 Athena Zinfandel -Columbia Valley
Rich rasberry flavor with a long finish.
Pair with beef tenderloin or standing rib roast.
Natalie's Estate Winery is located in the foothills of the Chehalem Ridge in the North Willamette Valley in Oregon. 145 cases were produced.


  1. Thanks for the suggestion, Lynnell. Can I find this locally?

  2. Natalie's doesn't sell wine on their website. Odom is their distributor in this area. The person that I've met from Odom is Sarah Lucke (800)822-1312 Ext 4128. Another source is to call Esquin Wine Merchants in Seattle (206) 682-7374. However, a far better source is to treat yourself to a trip to the North Willamette Valley located less than an hour from Portland. Pristine country!

  3. This is a great wine. I think it comes from old vines planted along the Columbia river. Unusual to find Zin so far north.
