Winemaker Notes

Aromas of currant, cassis and spice box give way to a palate of freshly picked ripe cherry and hints of earth.

Fine tannins, an elegant mouthfeel and focused acidity lead to a long finish, creating a delightful wine to

pair with cured meats, duck confit, and roasted pork loin, as well as cream-based pastas and semi-soft

cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
A racy style, buoyed by a polised structure, offering expressive cherry, bay leaf and smoky cracked pepper flavors that take on richness towards refined tannins. Drink now through 2027.

Lastly, the 2016 Zinfandel Rockpile checks in as 100% Zinfandel that spent 14 months in mostly neutral oak (15% new). This site always delivers impressive purity of fruit and this cuvée is no exception, showing plenty of cassis and blackberry fruits as well as loads of spice box, dried herbs, incense, and flowers. Beautifully textured, with sweet tannin, it just glides across the palate and has both richness and elegance. It's another beautiful Zinfandel from this estate.

High elevation vineyards—800 to 2,100 feet—on well-drained soils of red and brown clay loam, gravel and large rock outcroppings produce low yields of intense, high-quality fruit. Surrounded by Northern Sonoma County and overlapping Dry Creek Valley in its northwest corner, the Rockpile AVA produces some of California most powerful Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon based wines.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
