Rockpile Botticelli Vineyard Zinfandel Petite Sirah 2019

young but so drinkable now. don’t think it needs the 5 to 6 years to peak as suggested by Ridge! — 3 months ago

Davis Family Vineyards

Rockpile Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Nose has ripe blueberry, over-ripe blackberry, ripe plum, blackberry jam, faint anise, dry cigar, faint wood smoke and a bag of green & red peppers.

Palate has ripe plum, blackberries, black cherry, prune, old chocolate, faint moist earth and light artificial sugar.

Incredibly smooth, light tannins, but what an amazing red blend! Such an easy drinker, but coupled with a great CA vintage, a total win.

Cleaned the grill today, never ever done this in March in the Berkshires! Clean grill and warm weather equals an early start to the grilling season; beef flap steak from Kinderhook Farm (Valatie, NY) tonight, 135°F with 15m rest, beautiful pair to this wine.

41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Cabernet Franc, 21% Malbec, 8% Merlot & 4% Petit Verdot

@Tom Casagrande We gotta take advantage of the warmer weather when we can and grill; on a sidenote iI put the snowblower in the shed today, which certainly means we're gonna get another storm before the season is over.

Rockpile Ridge Vineyard Zinfandel 2018

Deep, complex nose with big bold jams. Smooth and wonderfully dry with chocolate, blackberry, and a hint of tobacco. It’s delicious. — 3 months ago

Trecini Cellars

Rockpile Zinfandel

I liked this a lot, for a bigger wine it was great. I might have thought this was Napa cab, but this had big boysenberry notes along with lots of American oak. The American oak on it wasn’t totally my style because I felt it was a little too involved BUT it was done well. (Difference in personal preference as opposed to bad execution.). I really did like this as a large bold wine. Didn’t feel a lot towards zin but super fun! — 5 months ago

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2018

Been a long time since I had a Mauriston Zin and I missed it! Yea, there Rockpile is even better but this is excellent. Many may enjoy beer with smoked chicken wings but try this Zin. Flavors melded wonderfully with our two different BBQ ribs, tannins were medium, very smooth for such a young vintage, and the pepper flavors seemed to accent the spices in the food. — 2 months ago

Secret Stones Rockpile Zinfandel 2015

Potent raspberry and blackberry mix on the nose with pepper and earth/chalk on the palate as well. Another BBQ rib night that needed to pair with a fruity, zippy wine and this fit the bill. — 3 months ago
