WINERY NOTES
Introduced to California during the Gold Rush, Zinfandel is considered by many to be America's heritage grape. A tribute to California wine history, this Zinfandel was sourced from some of the state's oldest and most revered wine regions, from family-owned vineyards that in some cases date back over 100 years.

VINEYARDS
This wine blends lots from select vineyards in top growing regions: El Dorado (60%), Sierra Foothills (23%), Lake (14%) and Napa (3%) counties.

WINEGROWING
A wet winter with moderate rainfall, a mild spring and a warm summer created the ideal growing season. Very warm weather at the beginning of harvest accelerated the need to pick Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay in early September. Sustainable farming practices throughout the growing season were tailored to each block with the assistance of aerial photos produced using NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) technology. The fruit was hand picked at dawn and sorted in the vineyard.

WINEMAKING
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.

Winemaker Notes:
"When poured, this classic California Zinfandel is a purple-ruby color with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, there are concentrated aromas of dried cherries that meld with warm vanilla, mocha, and mulling spices. Lush flavors of ripe plum and raspberry jam flood the palate, followed by touches of dark chocolate in the background. subtle and round tannins and length for a fresh and enticing finish."

Critical Acclaim:

90 points - Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
"The 2019 Rombauer Vineyards California Zinfandel is nicely layered and finely textured on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings aromas and flavors of ripe berries to the fore. Pair it with BBQ baby back ribs."
