Today’s Rock Wall Wine Co. 2011 Napa Valley Hendry Vineyard Reserve Zinfandel is a flat-out fantastic wine that is selling FAST.

Steve Heimoff called today’s wine one of the best Zins around, and we can’t help but agree. Classically flavored, with powerful yet elegant notes of jammy dark fruit and spice, Zins just don’t get much better.

Please visit us soon. We got our hands on every last case of today’s wine, but it just may not be enough!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Richly colored dark crimson in the glass, with a bit of a velvet sheen as it’s given a swirl.

Smell:

Beautifully fragrant, with juicy, reduced dark berry and black cherry aromas joining hints of summer earth, cedar, anise, crushed black peppercorn, and a bit of berry bramble.

Taste:

About as classic as Zin gets. Leading with jammy notes of bright dark berry and wild strawberry, today’s wine features secondary notes of freshly ground black peppercorn, dark chocolate, dried blueberry, cedar wood cigar box, brown baking spices, and just a bit of honeycomb.

Finish:

Today’s wine is big, but certainly not boisterous, with well integrated tannins and silken mouthfeel.

Pairing:

Grilled skewers of New York steak, mushrooms, and pearl onions, finished with a balsamic glaze.
