ZINFANDEL - CALIFORNIA
Zinfandel is truly a rock-and-roll kind of wine. It’s wild, untamed and makes a habit of breaking the rules that keep other wines in check. Flamboyantly expressive, zinfandel wines are a sold-out arena of opulence and concentration and an extended guitar solo of vivid, explosive fruit character. Bigggy Rocker is sourced from some of California’s finest coastal Zinfandel vineyards, a drum solo in a glass and a jam session in the mouth.
A wine of extraordinary depth, Bigggy Rocker is a wonderfully vivid zinfandel of extraordinary aromatic intensity and inner perfume. Wild mountain berry, spice and white pepper notes on the nose are heady and exhilarating. In the mouth, the fruit comes in waves, with layers of raspberry, blackberry, blood orange and cinnamon notes that are vivid and deep, satisfying all the senses. Bigggy Rocker is an appealing wine that will have you shaking your hips out on the dance floor in no time.

ZIN THE MOOD
Zinfandel is a California tradition, a heritage grape and a wine that no other wine region on Earth can duplicate. In this sense, it embodies the American spirit itself – unyielding, non-conforming, adventurous and free. The craggy ridges and isolated valleys where the state’s best Zinfandel vineyards are planted seem to defy the notion that viticulture is even possible in these remote locations, yet the vines thrive and the wines rock!
The best Zinfandel wines are also shockingly long lived, having seen so many changes in tradition and custom, yet, like Keith Richards, continue to put on a great show despite their weathered appearance. These vines truly convey all of the history of the state’s viticultural past while at the same time, forward looking winemakers continue to polish and refine the incomparable wines that these vineyards produce. Bigggy Rocker celebrates this uniquely California wine style, so pour a glass and let’s rock!
