From the Winemaker

"This Zinfandel fruit comes from vines more than 1,200 feet off the Dry Creek Valley floor. I just love the way everything comes together perfectly on the palate - so delicious!" - Jennifer Higgins

Tasting Notes

The Rockpile AVA is one of the most iconic growing areas for world class Zinfandel in all of California. The unique terroir of volcanic soil, elevation, sloping vineyards and sun exposure yield wines of intense flavor and tannin. This wine certainly fits the bill. Aromatics of red raspberry, plum and violets leap from the glass followed by more subtle notes of cinnamon and cigarbox characters. The palate is filled with brambly briary fruit, red licorice and cocoa supported by supple tannins and laser like acidity. The 2018 vintage offered near perfect growing conditions from start to finish and this wine sings like few others - pure Zinfandel fruit with focus, power and finesse. Simply delicious!
