2019 Zinfandel, Får
94% Zinfandel 6% Petite Sirah
15 month in oak barrels 100% French
Aromatics include coffee, sweet blue and black fruits, vanilla bean and undertones of savory dried herb. The texture is seamless, with mountain-grown power and restraint. This wine resolves perfectly, with a multilayered and persistent finish of ripe red fruit, spice and sweet earth tones.
All of our 2019 Rockpile Zinfandels have extraordinary complexity as well as Rockpile’s inherent staying power, and this Zin is no exception. It takes its name, Får, from the Swedish word for sheep, and pays homage to our family’s heritage as pioneer homesteaders originally from Stockholm, who raised merino sheep for the wool on land that is now the heart of our vineyards in Rockpile.
While 12 months of patient aging will reveal additional secondary and tertiary attributes, the juicy fruit can be appreciated now, and throughout the next 5-7 years.
