Editorial Reviews for Rockpile Winery Mauritson Zinfandel Rockpile Ridge Vineyard
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
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.
