Carol Shelton Wines Zinfandel Rockpile Rocky Reserve Rockpile Ridge Vineyard 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark earthy, mineral and balsamic on the nose with dark fruit and pressed floral accents. Rich and seamless on entry, this has fine tension in the mouth, a little dusty though with super depth on the palate and deeply steeped flavors, all blackberry and black curranty The super fine yet firm tannins keep this firm and focused through the long finish which shows some blueberry jam notes a dark assertive spice flavors. The oak is very well judged offering gentle support to the dark and mineral fruit flavors. 92pts
