2021 Zinfandel, Får
90% Zinfandel 10% Petite Sirah
15 month in oak barrels 100% French
The growing season for this vintage yielded Zinfandels with transcendent plushness and sophisticated character. The Får also has a complex aromatic profile reminiscent of dark fruit compote, savory dried herbs, crushed graphite and red earth mineral. The texture is seamless and accessible and the wine resolves perfectly, with a multi-layered and persistent finish of ripe red fruit, warm sweet spices and earth tones.
Our 2021 Rockpile Får Zinfandel is only the second iteration of this exceptional mountain-grown Zinfandel. It takes its name from the Swedish word for sheep and pays homage to our family’s heritage as pioneering homesteaders originally from Stockholm, who raised merino sheep for the wool on land that’s 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.
