2018 Rossi Ranch Zinfandel
2018 Rossi Ranch Zinfandel
Heritage, Organic Sonoma Valley Vineyard

This vintage of Rossi zinfandel is a mystery novel, with twists and turns from the beginning aromatics to the last taste in the finish. The aromatics to this wine start with a savory aspect, that flow gently into the black cherry and raspberry coulis with just a hint of freshly cracked black peppercorns and tarragon.

The palate begins with a medium to full-bodied feel and builds by the midpalate, into a not just a very complex experience, but one that makes you ponders what’s going to happen next. Black and blue fruits with savory notes intermingle with a black licorice and a glycerol concentration, with just enough back bone to give it verve. The finish to this wine is one of my favorite aspects of tasting this wine. I find that’s its mineral and soft tannin structure keeps the suspense going.

Originally planted by legendary vintner, Carlo Rossi in 1910, Rossi Ranch is steeped in Sonoma Valley history. My friend Phil resurrect it's old vines in 2012 and together we make magic!

Why This Wine?

Valentine Rossi’s Old Vine Zinfandel, incredible terroir, and the pioneering Phil Coturri farming it! That’s a winning glass! What I love about making Zinfandel from this site is that it reminds me of a sandy soil Châteauneuf-du-Pape and ones that are also in the galets (rocky) soils blended together. Thus, you have the elegance of one and intensity and richness of the other.

Tasting Notes
94 Jeb Dunnuck - From a great vineyard in Sonoma and all varietal, the 2018 Zinfandel Rossi Ranch Vineyard reveals a dense ruby/plum hue to go with a rich, meaty bouquet of red and black plums, sandalwood, cigar wrapper, peppery herbs, and iron. Rich and beautifully textured, with building structure, this medium to full-bodied Zinfandel is going to drink brilliantly for a solid decade, if not longer.
