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:
2014 Rocky Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel, Rockpile
Blackberries, brambly dark fruit and minerality characterize this plush and thoroughly drinkable Rockpile zinfandel. Bright acidity on the finish keeps this beauty just on the safe side of hedonistic. The velvety tannins are approachable now and some formidable mid palate weight delivers the gravitas. With mocha notes and palate of juicy berries, this vintage will become your new favorite. Drink now through 2024.
