Product Overview

The 2016 Rockpile Rockpile Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel offers focused and beautiful aromas of dried fig compote, crushed walnut, and boysenberry reduction overlaying coffee grounds. The wine shows real elegance on the palate, including purity of fruit, a silky textured mid-palate, and soft refined tannins. There is a savory element that complements the signature minerality that runs through all Rockpile Zinfandels. Enjoy this wine over the next 10-12 years.

Varietal Composition: 95% Zinfandel, 5% Petite Sirah
Appellation: Rockpile AVA, Sonoma County
Aging: 15 months in French oak barrels

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"With an addition of 5% Petite Sirah, this wine is brooding in a berry fruit tone that mingles with brown sugar, baking spice and coffee. Lifted acidity does a good job reining in the fundamental power and concentration at its core." -VB, 12/31/18

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Zinfandel Rockpile Ridge Vineyard features notes of baked plums, blackberry tart and forest floor over nuances of stewed rhubarb, tar and raisin cake. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals plenty of earth and savory layers, framed by chewy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long. 990 cases produced." -LPB, 6/29/18

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Dynamic, if still a bit young and tight, offering compelling briary cherry, dusty sage and white pepper flavors that finish with refined but spirited tannins. Best from 2019 through 2024. 990 cases made." -TF, 6/15/18
