Food Pairings for Rancho Zabaco Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Monte Rosso Monte Rosso Vineyard
The grapes were hand harvested and sorted to ensure the optimal quality of fruit went into the final blend. The grapes were gently destemmed but not crushed and gravity fed to the fermentor without pumping to allow for greater concentration and fresh, fruit-forward blackberry flavors. The grapes were cold soaked for two to three days at temperatures not exceeding 60°F to add color and complexity, followed by a ten to twelve day fermentation period where the temperature did not exceed 88°F. The Rancho Zabaco Monte Rosso Zinfandel spent over 6 months in 89% French and 11% American oak barrels from esteemed coopers Seguin-Moreau, Vicard, Taransaud, and Radoux.
