Today is St. Patrick’s Day. A day commonly associated with leprechauns, corned beef and cabbage, and wearing green while heading to the local pub for a pint.
However, today also marks the beginning of Vintage Paso ~ Zinfandel Festival. Wine lovers will attend the three day event to taste the region’s first wine, Zinfandel.
The Paso Robles AVA produces Zinfandel, also known as Primitivo, that tends to be soft and round. The primary flavors of Zinfandel are jam with blueberry, black pepper, cherry and plum notes. When you taste Zinfandel, the jammy fruitiness is often followed by spice or a tobacco-like smoky finish. Zinfandel pairs well with BBQ foods and Italian cuisine.
Rockin’ R will be pouring RUXperienced and Nirvana, which are 100% Zinfandel, as well as our Super-Roblan red blends. Come on out to R-tasting room and enjoy R-wines paired with cheeses and various BBQ goodies.
