Saldo doesn’t fit in, but that doesn’t matter. When you’re from “here and there” (that’s what Saldo means in Latin), you don’t need to form to one, single place. That’s the funny thing about expectations—they’re made to be broken.
So much more than one appellation, Saldo is sourced from California’s oldest, dry-farmed, historic vineyards – Dry Creek, Lodi, and Amador, where Zinfandel has thrived for decades..Dark ruby color with bold aromas of black licorice, black pepper, cherry, and baking spice. The entry is rich, full, and scintillating. The palate is mouthwatering and smooth with a hint of chocolate. The finish is voluptuous with soft, velvety tannins. 85% Zinfandel; 15% Blend of Petite Sirah and Syrah
Trecini 2015 Rockpile Zinfandel$39.00
One of the regions finest appellations for growing Zinfandel is the heralded ‘Rockpile’ AVA in the northern realms of the Dry Creek Valley. Rockpile is unique in that there are no wineries within the borders of the AVA. However, winemakers have long considered this region a hidden gem and compete to secure grapes from fewer than a dozen Rockpile growers each year. A bountiful level of vibrant fruit captures the most soft and more refined tannins the Rockpile Zinfandel. 14 months of barrel aging in 100% French Oak, of which about 20% new, has created additional textures and dimensions, while still respecting this distinctive Rockpile fruit. The 2015 Rockpile Zinfandel showcases ripe raspberries, cola, spice, and wild berry brambles. Sweet tobacco and cocoa powder add complexity. Bright berry flavors linger throughout a long, long smooth finish. The round, supple tannins and concentrated flavors speak to the specificity of the Rockpile terroir. This juicy Zinfandel demonstrates elegance and balance.
