Rocky Reserve Florence Vineyard Zinfandel 2013

So long since I’ve had a Rockpile wine and loved this!! Black and green pepper along with dark berries (raspberry and blackberry). An excellent jam flavor that just fits so well with bbq ribs. — 3 years ago

Les Casses-Têtes Meursault Chardonnay 2016

Lyle Fass
9.4

Wow this is singing! What a nose. Gorgeous lemon inflected minerality. Hints of attractive spicey oak and stunning rocky minerality. Tree bark and herbs. So good. What a screaming mimi of a nose. Palate is rich and ripe but also nervy and tense. Amazing purity buttressed by that awesome Meursault richness. Lovely texture. Awesome mouthfeel and a lovely lemon drop lime zest finish. Wonderful. — 3 years ago

Rocky Point Pinot Noir 2022

Label nails it. First hit on the nose is mineral earth, lava rock. That fades into flint, graphite, which then fades into subtle lavender and deep fruit. Bright strawberry lights up the tongue, punctuated by a soft tannic finish. Absolutely beautiful wine. — 8 months ago

Táganan Parcela Margalagua Red Blend 2019

Sanshugong.

12% alc. Margalagua is a charismatic parcel of the Taganan vineyard comprising 100- to 300-year-old vines on a uniquely iron-rich seam of rocky volcanic soil. This treacherously steep vineyard site is planted with a mix of mostly indigenous red grapes, such as Negramoll and Listán Negro, with a small amount of Listán Blanco. This parcel is about elegance and depth rather than power: due to the silky character of the wines, it is vinified differently with a much longer (30- to 45-day) maceration and 100% stem-inclusion, yielding a darker, bolder, richer wine.
[Vintage 2018:] “This vineyard has been vinified and bottled separately since 2012 because it has a very strong personality, not surprisingly, because it's one of the most fascinating and exceptional vineyards I've ever seen in my life. . . This is a translucent bright ruby color, and it's aromatic, floral, spicy and mineral, expressive and super fresh, because of the year and because they have new cooler vineyards. It has lots of notes of violets and lilies. The flavors are pungent, precise, clean, symmetric and very elegant, with refined tannins and a tasty, somewhat salty finish. This is the best wine they have produced to date. Truly word-class.” WA 98 (Luis Gutiérrez)

Masso Catarratto 2018

Wow! High acidity, medium bodied, and flavorful. The ultimate wine for clams, oysters, and seafood. Made from Catarratto, the indigenous Sicilian grape grown in rocky and mineral-laden soil. Grapefruit and orange peel with hints of volcanic minerality. Lively and fresh. Excellent. 2018 vintage on Jun 7, 2020 — 4 years ago
