San Lorenzo Winery Rock Garden Zinfandel 2014


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Produced from the steepest part of our San Lorenzo Estate, this vineyard derives its name from the large cobbles that challenge it to produce. The Padrone clone, a favorite from my many days walking acres of Sonoma County's zinfandel vineyards purchasing for Seghesio, was my choice for this site just below our home. Grapes are harvested at night, double sorted, then placed in small 4-ton, open-top tanks where they cold-soak for 5 days at 55°. Punch-downs and pump-overs ensue until day 6 when we turn off the cooling and inoculate to begin fermentation.

Wine SpectatorImpressive, with depth and a distinctive personality. Plump blackberry and licorice aromas lead to refined yet concentrated flavors of smoky cracked pepper, dark Asian spices and sage. Approachable now but will bloom in the cellar. Drink now through 2030. 425 cases made.
