Produced at RustRidge’s estate vineyard in the Chiles Valley region of Napa Valley, the 2005 Reserve Zinfandel is a Library-status wine that shows the distinct characteristics of this unique sub appellation. The Chiles Valley, nestled in the Vaca Mountains, has a warmer climate than other portions of Napa Valley, making it a very desirable location for growing complex and elegant red wines.

This 2005 RustRidge Reserve Zinfandel is a Gold Medal Winner at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition and is a classic expression of the Zinfandel varietal at its finest!

With aromas and flavors of black raspberry and roasted red chile, cinnamon, earth, and saddle leather, this gorgeous bottling has a deeply concentrated fruit core and a smooth, dry finish that lingers on the palate. Try pairing this Reserve Zinfandel with grilled steak, lamb, gorgonzola cheese and even dark chocolate.
