Las Jaras Proprietary Rose 'Old Vines' Mendocino 2018
Founded by Joel Burt and Eric Wareheim, Las Jaras seeks to create balanced, low-alcohol wines full of juicy food-friendliness and supple character. For the 2018 rosé vintage, the duo switched from varietal Carignan to a Zinfandel dominant (78%) assemblage, blended with 7 other varieties. Grapes are whole cluster pressed and vinified on lees in steel, creating a textured, thirst-quenching rosé perfect for barbecues outside!
Despite its Croatian origin (and relation to Italy’s Primitivo) there’s no more quintessentially “American” grape than the luscious “Zin” whose gnarly old vines epitomize California’s wine heritage.More wines with this grape
California, United States
The sun in the American wine solar system, but at the same time a wine 'nation' in its own right, California is like the popular kid in high school that was good at everything and good-looking, too.
