The perfect antidote to the oppressive summer heat. Our 2020 Sangiovese Rose is barrel fermented lending a pleasant perception of creaminess in the mouth with a clean, refreshing finish.
In the spring of 2019, Marilyn Zerba, the light and spirit of Zerba Cellars, passed away. In honor of a kind and generous soul that touched the lives of so many, we offer this very special commemorative red blend. Sourced exclusively from the very first vines planted by Marilyn and Cecil Zerba at our estate Winesap Vineyard, this wine is a true reflection of Marilyn’s singular personality; vibrant, approachable, with an impression that lingers long after it’s gone.
Aperitif, dessert wine, patio pounder; our 2019 Wild Pink Sweet Rosé is a wine for all occasions. Representing a field blend of all seven red varieties planted at our Dad’s estate vineyard, this wine was produced by pressing whole clusters under minimal skin contact and then arresting the fermentation when the sugar/acid balance was just right. The result is a delicately sweet, vibrantly crisp Rosé that is sure to please!
Another addition to our expanding portfolio of single-vineyard Winesap offerings and a stunning example of what Cab can achieve amidst the ancient cobbles of the Walla Walla River.
Italian for “balance,” Equilibrio represents our best efforts to discover new and exciting ways of blending the fifteen different red varieties we cultivate across our three estate vineyards. Our 2018 offering tempers the overtly sweet, jammy fruit of Zinfandel with the elegant perfume and exotic spice of Grenache. Blended in equal measure, the result is an impossibly smooth, extraordinarily nuanced wine of power, depth, and above all, balance.
If you have not yet experienced the visceral pleasure of drinking a varietal Malbec, then you may want to take a seat. Our 2018 rendition is an ideal ambassador for a variety whose fruity impact has been known to knock wine lovers off their feet.
Perhaps most associated with the “M” in the time-honored GSM blends of the Southern Rhone, Mourvedre has finally begun to emerge from the shadow cast by the better known “G” and “S”. Make no mistake, when left to its own devices, Mourvedre can truly astonish!
Our fifth offering of 100% Winesap Vineyard Syrah, the grapes in this wine were grown in the ancient stony flood plain of the Walla Walla River. Wines from this newly designated viticultural area carry a remarkably distinct signature that has already captured the attention of the wine media and wine-drinking public alike.
Historically, winemakers often co-ferment the red grape, Syrah, with a small amount of the white grape, Viognier. Here at Zerba Cellars, we put a twist on this technique by co-fermenting Viognier and Syrah with the Italian grape, Sangiovese. This results in a varietal Sangiovese unlike any other.
Perhaps the crown jewel of our estate Cockburn Vineyard, the Syrah grape is truly at home in this temperate, high-altitude site. The secret has long been out about the world-class Syrahs emerging from the Walla Walla Valley and our 2018 Cockburn Vineyard Syrah is a definitive example.
