Rose water scent. Dry honey and almost ripe plums, nice finish. My favorite rosé of the year. — 6 years ago

Mauritson Wines

Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2019

A very serviceable accompaniment to high-end red-table-cloth Italian. Ripe, round and ready to bring a smile. Ripe black fruit, just enough acidity to power the fruit. 14.75 ABV….fun without having to think about it. — 6 months ago

One of the more complex zins you're likely to taste, bramble dark fruits with a hint of cocoa. — 6 years ago

Richard - I also highly recommend their 2010 Petite Sirah (Landy Vnyd., RRV). Big, fruity, rich and BOLD it should be right up your valley.

Kokomo Winery

Rockpile Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2013

K so having a WSET 3 tasting club is making me burn through my supplies faster than usual. And burn through their supplies too. Oops for all of us. Now I've tried all of Kokomo's offerings in terms of Zin (although I wish I had been wealthy enough to crack them all open side by side) and I must say Pauline's vineyard=least fave. Rockpile was the best. Timber Crest was in the middle and...to be honest? The least pricy "Dry Creek Valley" is both really excellent and not as pricy as Rockpile Zin. My top two were probably both the least expensive (Dry Creek) and most pricy (Rockpile) so there ya go. Anyway I'm reviewing Rockpile here! Tis purple-ruby in color, on the nose black sweet cherries and chopped vanilla beans plus crushed blackberries. On the tongue: medium acid, low plus tannins, medium body, black cherries and blackberries and vanilla ice cream and the finish...it is medium in length and there is more of everything I mentioned you smell and taste and anyway... Taste both the more generic-in-name-only Dry Creek Valley Kokomo Zin (avail to all) and the Rockpile(I think only club members can get this). And my blind wine tasting club will have more samplings soon that I can't wait to share. — 6 years ago

Awesome review. The Rockpile is definitely the premium offering out of their Zin's. I would agree that this one is the best, although price prohibits regular consumption. Glad you enjoyed another Kokomo offering!

@Dan White yes if I were a more wealthy woman I would choose this one all the time, haha. But having a group I chip into tasting with definitely makes a wider variety open!
