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.
