Our Castle Rock Zinfandel is produced from grapes grown in Northern California’s beautiful Mendocino County where vineyards were first planted in the early 1860s. Here the headwaters of the Russian River carve a fertile and rugged landscape. The warm summers, cool springs, crisp falls and wet winters make ideal growing conditions for producing Zinfandel grapes. This medium-bodied wine has outstanding complexity and character with flavors of blackberry, raspberry and plumsmixed with notes of pepper, spice and earth, leading into a soft and lingering finish.
Our Zinfandel pairs well withfoods such as grilled chicken, steak or lamb and most pasta dishes. Fresh and tasty, and well worth the $13 I spent on it. Nicely balanced with modest tannin, fruit, and a light sourness. It went well with homemade oyster pie and salad
