LE LAPIN Zinfandel "Paso Robles" 2008 - CALIFORNIA
Fruity and complex with brambly fruits of black cherries and blackberries with a spicy, smokey long finish. From the Rabbit Ridge Winery.
RABBIT RIDGE/LE LAPIN
Paso Robles, California
Le Lapin is the French word for rabbit. It is also the name of our brand new line of wine produced from grapes grown exclusively in Paso Robles. All of the Le Lapin wines are non-vintage, which means two or more vintages can be used to make the wine. This allows us to blend a newer vintage wine for freshness with an older vintage for complexity or to make the wine more drinkable. This is especially important when we use tannic varietals such as Syrah and Petite Sirah.
Le Lapin will always be the best value wine produced by Rabbit Ridge Winery. This wine
will be sold for $6 per bottle in the Rabbit Ridge Tasting Room. What? You say Rabbit
Ridge is producing yet another low priced, high quality wine? Well this can only mean
one thing! "The Rabbit" intends for this wine to taste as good, if not better than the $12
bottle of wine you purchase from another winery.
Our very first release of Le Lapin wines is now available and includes some big, bold,
classic varietals that Paso Robles is very well-known for such as Petite Sirah and
Zinfandel. We are also offering a Merlot and a blended red wine called "Multiplicity". A later
release of the Le Lapin wines will also include Syrah.
Although Le Lapin wines are made in an every-day style and are ready to drink now, they
should age well for a few years.
