Nice dark fruit explodes up front. Spice in the middle with a hint of chocolate at the end.Velvety texture in the mouth with a nice burst of spice right before the chocolate taste.

Very good but not quite up to par with previous years. Hard to go wrong with any Rosenblum Zinfandel but there are probably other better choices at this price.

The bouquet of this rich, extracted wine shows rich black cherry and black currant with hints of vanilla and black pepper. The flavors are ripe black cherry, currant and creamy spice with notes of dark chocolate.

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Rosenblum Cellars Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Rockpile VineyardVineyardThese small hillside vineyards sit high above Lake Sonoma with a great view of the lake and upper Dry Creek Valley. The unique location and the fact that these vineyards are planted to a rare clone of old-vine Zinfandel give this wine a very special nature. The name Rockpile Road is appropriate because the fence that borders Rockpile Road is made from rocks pulled from the vineyard. The soil is a volcanic loam with red clay and gravel. Cellar Practices and WinemakingThe grapes were hand-harvested and crushed into small macro bin fermentors. The caps were punched into the fermenting juice twice daily. To add character, this wine was inoculated with three different yeast strains, including the Rockpile isolate. In addition, the wine benefitted from Rosenblums diverse barrel program; primarily French in origin, oaks from over twenty coopers heighten the character of this stunning wine. Winemaker CommentsThe vineyards owned by the Florence family sit at about 1200 ft above sea level, overlooking beautiful Lake Sonoma in the upper Dry Creek Valley. The property was propagated in the mid-1990s with Zinfandel bud-wood from the historic, 120-year-old St. Peters Church vineyard located in Cloverdale. The old clone and high elevation in combination with rocky soil conditions and cool maritime breezes all come together to make one of the worlds best Zinfandels. Rich and robust, flavors of blackberry, black cherry and raspberry mingle with spice and vanilla in the nose. True to its acclaimed linage the 2006 Rockpile Road Vineyard Zinfandel is a stunner.2005 vintage rated 92ptsWA / 91ptsWSThis is a california wine
