Perfumed and deep on the nose, with aromas of crushed berries, balsamic, and a bit of gamy lamb topped with faint sage and lemon verbena notes. On entry, this is plump, with some density but not a ton of weight, delivering a a little blueberry fruit early on, followed by some carob, then mostly raspberry and hints of wild cherry fruit. This finished with fine tension and detail and remains bright and vibrant. 93 points

    Rich and warm, round wine, with a gentle earthiness. Striking blackberry flavors on the finish.

    Intensely fruity, with blackberries and raspberries dominating. Baked blueberry pie in the mouth. This wine was a little rich and sweet for me.

    In 2006 we harvested fruit from all nine blocks of Zinfandel in the Rockpile Ridge Vineyard. We pick the blocks at different times, and ferment these separately to insure the integrity and uniqueness of the individual blocks. Working with nine amazingly distinct blocks is a winemaking dream come true, and is what makes our Rockpile Ridge Zinfandel so spectacular. The bright nose of blackberry and ripe cherry are complemented by hints of vanilla, black pepper and minerals. Vivid fruit dominates the front palate, giving way to soft and supple tannins. Pure and full bodied, with firm acidity, this wine will age gracefully for the next 3-5 years.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    93% Zinfandel, 7% Petite Sirah. On the nose red fruit is complemented by earthen spices and nuances of sweet oak. Fresh raspberry and baked fruit dominate the front palate giving way to a balanced mouth feel. The tannins are silky and focused, exposing the more elegant characteristics of the cooler growing season. The finish is prototypical of Rockpile: long and vibrant. Full bodied with balanced acidity, this wine will age gracefully for the next 5-7 years.
