Wine information: The Edizione Pennino Zinfandel pays tribute to Francis Ford Coppola’s maternal grandfather, Francesco Pennino. Born in Italy, Francesco emigrated to the United States as a young man and started a music publishing and import company known as “Edizione Pennino.” Zinfandel for Edizione Pennino is grown in a variety of vineyards scattered across Rubicon Estate’s 235 contiguous acres. Two historic clones contribute to Edizione Pennino: Morisoli and Werle. The Morisoli clone provides the wine with blockbuster flavours of spice, cedar, and sweet fruit. The Werle clone adds aromas of chocolate and mocha, as well as a palate of dense, dark fruit. For more than two decades, Rubicon Estate has been farmed organically out of respect for the environment, the vineyard staff and the belief that organic grapes make better wine. The 2005 Edizione Pennino is 100% Zinfandel which is aged for 17 months in new and used French and American oak.

Tasting Notes: Edizione Pennino Zinfandel is dark, luscious, and very perfumey. Intense aromas of raspberry, white pepper and licorice are followed by sweet, mouth filling flavours of blue and red fruits, briar and spice. With a palate this dense and ripe, the profusion of flavour lingers and builds beautifully on the finish.

Reviews: "The wine is rich and complex and quite delicious. It has the mouthfeel of a fin Cab, but the flavour profile is all Zin." 93 Points, Wine Enthusiast.
