Sourced from the Borra family’s best “47.5°” Syrah grown near the cool Mokelumne River, and Carignane grown in one of Lodi’s oldest vineyards around Jessie’s Grove, Zeal is made in a dry, traditional saignée method, using juice bled off newly-crushed grapes.

A beautiful salmon-pink, this rosé squeezes loads of fruit into a perfectly-dry, mouthwatering refreshment. Strawberries, tangy grapefruit and watermelon come first to mind, before a long, creamy, minerality-driven finish with floral notes of rose petals. Saignée of Syrah lends lurking tannins and a bit of weightiness, while early-picked Carignane brings that tangy fresh balance. Toss some grilled chicken with grapefruit and pomegranate into a mixed-green salad, and pour Zeal in your glass. You won’t be disappointed. (03/24/2018)
