Fact Sheet

The name for our reserve wine, Rocky Reserve ® , comes from the deep red, rocky soils  of the Florence Vineyard, 1400 feet above Lake Sonoma and Dry Creek Valley.   This is a more elegant and restrained Zin, worthy of five or more years of cellaring,  though it is packed with fragrant black and blue berry fruits.

Winemaker Notes:

Nice dark-red in color, big blueberry-blackberry fruit, spicy-chocolatey oak, nicely focused acidity enhances mineral flavors, elegantly structured tannins for aging, super plush long finish!
