The 2019 Rombauer Vineyards California Zinfandel is nicely layered and finely textured on the palate. This wine brings aromas and flavors of ripe berries to the fore. Pair it with BBQ baby back ribs. (Tasted: July 27, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Introduced to California during the Gold Rush, Zinfandel is considered by many to be America’s heritage grape. This Zinfandel is our tribute to California wine history; its fruit was sourced from family-owned vineyards, all located in the state’s oldest and most
revered wine regions and some of which are over 100 years old.

VINEYARDS
This wine blends lots from select vineyards in top growing regions: El Dorado County (42%), Amador County (38%), Lake County (12%), Lodi (6%) and Napa County (2%).

WINEGROWING
Heavy rains in March and April replenished reservoirs and led to healthy vine growth which we managed through leafing and cluster thinning. Weather during the summer and fall was moderate. Sustainable farming practices throughout the growing
season were tailored to each block with the assistance of aerial photos produced using NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation
Index) technology. The fruit was handpicked at dawn and sorted in the vineyard.

WINEMAKING
The grapes were carefully destemmed and optically sorted to ensure only perfect fruit made it into the wine. A cold soak
extracted color and flavor before primary fermentation began in tank. The wine was gently basket-pressed and then racked to
oak barrels to finish primary fermentation, malolactic fermentation and aging.

TASTING NOTES
When poured, our classic California Zinfandel is a purple-ruby color with a bright crimson hue. On the nose, there are
concentrated aromas of dried cherries that meld with warm vanilla, mocha and mulling spices. Lush flavors of ripe plum and raspberry jam flood the palate, followed by touches of dark chocolate in the background. Subtle, round tannins and great length make for a fresh and enticing finish.

FOOD PAIRINGS
Our favorite Joy of Cooking® pairings* for this wine include Baby Back Ribs, Rack of Lamb or Baked Ziti.

Rombauer

View all from Rombauer
RombauerWhen founders Koerner and Joan Rombauer moved their two children, two horses and five dogs to Napa Valley in 1972, they arrived armed with an appreciation for the intimate relationship between food and wine. Their appreciation stemmed from Koerner'’s great aunt Irma Rombauer having authored internationally renowned cookbook the Joy of Cooking and his ancestors originating from the winegrowing region of Rheingau, Germany, where wine is considered an essential complement to a meal.

Appreciation bred passion, and Rombauer Vineyards was established in 1980. Thirty-five years later, the winery remains owned and operated by first-, second- and third-generation members of the family.
