Rombauer says that the Brix at harvest was 28.1 for this Zin, quite an achievement for the rainy 2011 harvest. With that kind of ripeness come the big, brambleberry Zin flavors that make a fine partner to pulled pork, or gorgonzola-fig pizza. From the winemaker’s notes: “This Zinfandel is a great example of our ongoing commitment to quality vineyard selection. Handpicked Zinfandel from low yielding, old-vine blocks is harvested at optimum maturity and rushed to the winery in refrigerated trucks. At the winery we spare no effort or expense in the winemaking process to ensure quality and enjoyment.
