2019 Zin Blossoms

$29.00

Overview

One of our favorite summer wines! This style was discovered while working and sipping our way through southern France. Our dry rosé is bright and fruity with a balanced finish that will leave your mouth watering.

Winemaker's Notes

This 100% pure Zinfandel rosé is made from grapes hand-harvested from our estate vineyards. We use the traditional technique of whole cluster pressing to retain the complexity of the fruit. After 12-18 hours of leaving the juice in contact with the pressed skins (the time between going to bed and after our first cup of morning coffee), we drain the juice. This short time on the skins, creates the lighter color than a traditional Zinfandel, but ensures its complexity.

Tasting Notes

Rosé is made from many different grape varietals around the world and often by blending different varietals. We believe Zinfandel, with its mineral-like qualities, gives this wine structure while its fruity aromas evoke summertime BBQ’s with friends – a perfect pairing. We enjoy this wine chilled “beer cold” and paired with spicy foods - anything from Carnitas to Pad Thai, fresh vegetable pasta to the great American cheeseburger.
