Our 2014 Rosso offers rich, juicy flavors of berries, cherries, and an edge of spice. With medium weight and a velvety palate, this highly versatile red blend delivers robust character from supple tannins and lightly toasted oak. A perfect pairing with hearty dishes such as braised beef, grilled lamb chops, and cheesy pasta dishes. The supple texture and rich, juicy flavors of plum, cherries, mocha, and strawberry jam make this wine a perfect accompaniment to almost any meal.
2014 experienced an extremely warm, dry season, which prompted an early harvest of ripe, luscious fruit that offers great concentration, dramatic fragrance and a rich palate with good balance. The varied nuances in this wine are the result of blending varietals: Zinfandel offers pepper, spice notes, and succulent dark fruits, Syrah gives the wine a velvety texture, Cabernet Sauvignon lends red fruit and structure, and Petite Sirah provides body and weight. The fruit for Rosso is grown in Lodi, where warm sunny days give way to cool afternoons and evenings. This temperature differential slows the ripening process and allows the grapes to develop concentration and complexity
