This wine is produced from the Rock Garden vineyard block which derives its name from the large cobbles in the soil and is one of the steepest parts of the San Lorenzo Estate. This rough and rocky soil stresses the vines and produces strong healthy fruit. One of Pete’s favorite Zinfandel clones that this wine is produced from is called The Padrone clone, which grows just below the family’s house.
This wine has a dark fruit color with ruby flecks. You’ll find ripe red and black fruit on the nose and blackberry, black raspberry, cassis, and dried cherry on the palate. This full bodied wine has great acidity and finishes with plenty of powdery tannin. 312 cases produced.
