The Dry Creek Valley where we make our home is zin country. And we are tickled deep purple to source from our own Rockpile parcel known as “the Swale” block. This zin is not pink. This zin is not “hot” or “jammy,” which are undeniably great assets to a heavy metal cover band. Bruliam’s Rockpile Zinfandel is a revelation (cue gospel “Amen,” sister). I’m not kidding. You’ve got to try this stuff. Even my mom says so.
Our current release:
2011 Rocky Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel, Rockpile
The 2010 Rocky Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel showcases brambly dark fruit with sweet tobacco, black licorice, cocoa, and dried herbs. The mouth coating, velvety tannins create a luscious, long finish. This zinfandel possesses spectacular structure, layered complexity, and balance. It’s the perfect yin-yang of dark berries and savory spices. Enjoy it with grilled meats. Drink now through 2018.
