Rockpile Ridge Zinfandel
Story

“Our 2018 Rockpile Ridge Zinfandel carries all of the signature aromas expected from Zinfandel grown in Rockpile: candied red fruits; cocoa shavings with hints of dried flowers and herbs; leather and earthen dust. A smooth, inviting entry with black fruits retreats to mineral and sweet baking spices. That’s followed by a full-bodied, chewy texture with ripe tannins and great freshness, culminating in a long and layered finish. This energetic Zinfandel would benefit from at least 1-2 years of bottle age. Enjoy over the next 10-12 years.” More at MauritsonWines.com
