Valdez Family Winery Zinfandel Rockpile Botticelli Vineyard 2011

Member Review by EMark:

Something of a “barnyard” nose, but, thankfully, that does not seem to translate on the taste buds. Very pleasant plum and berry flavor on entry—slightly tart. Some dustiness. Some wood. Nice big, mouth-filling wine. Very moderate tannins still hanging around.

These notes from my review of the '08 apply to this '09 offering: Big Rockpile zin. Tons of dark fruit, dried plum, smoke, leather, tobacco with a nice long finish. Lots of body and character.
