2015 Black Rock Zinfandel
2015 BR Zinfandel
This is our Zinfandel harvested from vines planted on our estate in 1997. We have 19 acres planted on St. George rootstock with the spacing of 6’ X 8’ Upright Globe system of head training and spur pruning. The shiny, black obsidian, which is an outcropping from the volcanic red soils, is evident on a moonlit night when the cougars are on the prey.
This Zinfandel was fermented in 4X4 bins for 10 days, pressed using a membrane press, and aged in 50% new American Oak barrels for 18 months .
This Zinfandel has aromas of black currants and blackberries. It has good body and flavor with hints of black tea, followed by a touch of sweetness and a long lingering finish. Excellent with beef, lamb and cheeses.
