User Reviews for Rubicon Estate Niebaum-Coppola Zinfandel Edizione Pennino

Winemaker's Notes:

For this blend we chose to add 4% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Cabernet Franc to the Zinfandel because the Cabernet Sauvignon gives the Zinfandel strength and the Cabernet Franc adds a rich cherry note. The grapes for the Edizione Pennino were specifically chosen vine by vine according to ripeness. As each individual lot was harvested, the grapes were destemmed, crushed, and set for fermentation. The wine was fermented in six-ton stainless steel tanks for 7 days and was pumped over four times a day. This allowed the juice to be distributed evenly throughout the skins, extracting maximum color and flavor. After fermentation, the wine was racked into barrels, with fifty percent aged in new French oak and the balance in one to three-year-old French oak for fourteen months.
