Mauritson

Our Family's Rockpile Ridge Vineyard is located at nearly 1,200 ft elevation in the Rockpile appellation. We pick the blocks at different times, and ferment these separately to insure the integrity and uniqueness of the individual blocks. Working with nine amazingly distinct blocks is a winemaking dream come true, and is what makes our Rockpile Ridge Zinfandel so spectacular.

Wine Spectator

Intense and still a bit awkward in its youth, but appealing for its spicy raspberry aromas and structured flavors of baked cherry, toasty anise and cinnamon. Needs time. Best from 2013 through 2018.

Score: 91. —Tim Fish, May 31, 2012.

Wine Enthusiast

High in alcohol, but Rockpile Zins wear it well. The peppery heat is perfectly in keeping with the variety's briary, brambly personality. Enjoy the wild blackberry, spice and dark chocolate flavors now for maximum freshness.

Score: 90. —Steve Heimoff, June 01, 2012.
