This wine is effusive with aromas of red and black fruit, cherry cola and a touch of earthiness. Bright sweet fruit on the entry, reminiscent of French strawberry hard candy, gives way to a rich and juicy mid-palate with lingering tannins on the finish.
Pair this wine with rich meats such as Lamb sugo, pasta Amatriciana, or an herb-crusted pork loin. For a little fun, throw a tangy Irish cheddar on your burger or cheese board.
The grapes for our Rockpile Zinfandel come from Westphall Ranch and Mauritson Campground Vineyard in the Rockpile appellation. Seghesio is proud to work with the Glockner and Mauritson families, the two founding growers of the appellation. Similar to the Seghesio family, the Mauritsons have been farming in Sonoma County for five generations.
