Mazzocco Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Reserve Serracino 2008
The 2008 vintage was outstanding for Serracino Zinfandel, providing an irresistible opportunity to bottle a selected portion of the wine as a reserve. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with native yeast in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels and bottled unfined.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
