2005 Napa Valley Zinfandel - Rose Knoll - Sold Out
Our 2005 Napa Valley Zinfandel hales from Roses Knoll in the Napa Valleys most southern and westerly boarder. It is here that we find ourselves enjoying the best of both worlds, up on a warm bench above the valley floor and cool breeze to offer some relief during the heat of the summer sun. The Napa Valley in particular is known as one of the best Zinfandel growing regions in the world, and this limited production wine shows why.
Kasuari’s 2005 Zinfandel delivers all of the characteristics Zinfandel fanatics crave – gobs of asian plum, blackberry, Jamaican all spice and a touch of black pepper. New Oak from the Nevers forest in France contributes to this spicy complexity.
