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:
