Aromas of spice box and red fruit
Intense flavors of currant, candied apple and Zinfandelís briary essence
Soft entry with focused acidity and an extremely long finish
Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2010 Zinfandel Rockpile bursts from the glass with racy red raspberries, flowers, mint, cinnamon and sweet tobacco. The Rockpile is one of the more feminine, sensual wines in this range, but it, too, has excellent balance and plenty of early appeal. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (Apr 2013)
Rockpile, a narrow ridge 1,200 feet above Dry Creek Valley, is just one of those areas. Steep, well-drained hillsides with shallow,rocky topsoil provide for less-vigorous vines, smaller berries and intensely flavored Zinfandel.
