The Dry Creek Valley 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:
2012 Rockpile Zinfandel
A “zin for pinot lovers”, the 2012 exhibits a balanced and delicate nose while still remaining true to its Rockpile pedigree. Brambles and dried dark fruits are the most forward elements on the nose, with warm spices like clove and Asian 5-spice vibrating in perfect harmony. But it’s the smooth, full mouth-feel that makes this a truly special Zinfandel bottling. Kerith’s deft touch and decision to barrel the 2012 in 100% French oak elevates our 2012 Rockpile to a whole new level of deliciousness. Drink now through 2024.
