Valdez Family Winery Zinfandel Rockpile Rockpile Road Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

2005 Valdez Family Zinfandel Rockpile Road Vineyard. Its exotically ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit, spicy notes and meaty texture will thrill fans of heady, powerhouse Zinfandels. Attention to detail and respect for the vineyard's terroir are key to growing grapes. The vineyards of Rockpile produce wines that are not just about ripe and exotic fruit, but of a place, a taste of mineral, a taste of the sun, a taste of the rolling slopes and steep hillsides. When you have tasted Rockpile you h ave tasted the spirit and expression of this place. The Valdez family wines truly reflect the passion one must have for the vineyard. This is a california wine

Big Northern sonoma (Rockpile Vineyard) zin. Lots of dark fruit, blackberry, rhubarb, dried prune, more than ample tannins, a bit of smoke on the back end and a touch of licorice. Starting to get a bit of a brown tinge on the edge of the glass, ready now.
