This Zinfandel “Rocks”!

Carol’s career got an early and unusual start at only six years old. Her mom developed an “identify the scent” game using household herbs and spices that was the beginning of Carol’s path into the wine industry. It quickly became apparent that Carol not only had a great sense of smell, but she was remarkably adept at figuring out the new smells as the game evolved. Entering UC Davis with a penchant for poetry, Carol stumbled upon her true calling when she first entered a wine cellar. The wonderful aroma of wine aging in oak barrels was so enticing that it drew Carol to her life’s work, and the rest as they say… is history.

The 2008  Rocky Reserve, Florence Vineyard Zinfandel (95.5% Zinfandel and 4.5% Petite Sirah) was sourced from this old-vine vineyard high above Lake Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley at 1400 feet elevation.  This wine is very elegant and restrained and worthy of some time in the cellar, though it is packed with fragrant black and blueberry fruits.  The color is gorgeous and the aromas jump out of the glass.  The wine (full in body) wows you on impact as it is loaded with jammy fruit, a touch of strawberry preserve and a hint of cinnamon and black peppercorn spice on the finish.  345 cases produced!
