2006 Napa Valley Zinfandel - Rose Knoll
Our 2006 Napa Valley Zinfandel is from the Rose Knoll Vineyard, in the Napa Valleys most southern and westerly boarders. 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 2006 Zinfandel delivers all of the characteristics Zinfandel fanatics crave – gobs of massive asian plum, lush blackberry, Jamaican all spice with a touch of black pepper. New Oak from the Nevers forest in France contributes to this spicy complexity.
