2016 Rosa Canina Zinfandel

This small lot of Zinfandel was selected out of our various lots of purchased fruit as an exceptional expression of Sierra Foothills Zinfandel.   Grown at the Rosa Canina vineyard at 3000 feet elevation, this particular Zinfandel exhibits a wide complement of bright, herbal and savory aromas to complement Zin’s typical fruitiness.  Well-structured for a Zinfandel, the firm tannins provide mouth filling richness and age-worthiness. 

$22.00 per Bottle
$264.00 per Case
 

Description

Aroma – A deep and inviting aroma of strawberry and rhubarb pie, accentuated with aromas of cedar, star-anise and peppercorns.

 Palate – Chewy and mouthfilling on the palate, with fruit flavors giving way to structured and pleasantly drying tannins and a persistent backbone of acidity.
