Rombauer Zinfandel 2018, 750ml, California

The Rombauer family has over 30 years of winemaking experience in the Napa Valley and is dedicated to family, land, and community. This wine blends lots from select vineyards in top growing regions: El Dorado (42%), Amador County (32%), Lake County (17%), Napa County (6%) and Lodi (3%). The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. A cold soak extracted color and flavor before primary fermentation began in tank. The wine was gently basket-pressed, then racked to oak barrels to finish primary fermentation, malolactic fermentation and aging. Tasting notes: “Our classic California Zinfandel is a purple ruby, with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, concentrated aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry meld with black tea, vanilla and spice. Lush flavors of fig, blackberry jam, licorice and vanilla flood the palate, followed by touches of dark chocolate and white pepper in the background. Subtle and round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.” – Winery
