In what is one of our best videos to date (if we must say so ourselves), we present a behind-the-scenes look at the making of our new 2009 Rockpile Zinfandel. You'll get to meet our consulting winemaker Clay Mauritson and see the action going on during harvest at Mauritson Wines.
If you can't see the video below, please click here.
By the time you see this video, the wine will already be pressed and moved to barrel for aging. It's going to be about 24-months until the wine is available for sale, so if you want to see why we're so excited about this stuff, you need to try some of the gold standard in Rockpile zin from Mauritson. Our personal favorites are the Cemetery and Westphall Ridge.
In other exciting news, be on the lookout for an e-mail (or two) in the coming days announcing that our 2008 Doctor's Vineyard pinot noir is going on sale (finally!!).
In even more exciting news, I'm thrilled to announce that my lovely wife finished the Long Beach marathon yesterday in 3:42 - meeting her goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon!!
