Winemaker Tasting Notes: A deep, purple hue leads ultra-ripe blackberry, boysenberry, briar and cocoa aromas in our 2007 Rockpile Road Zinfandel. Across the midpalate, a complex layering of rich, dark fruit develops, balanced by complex wood tannins that flank the tongue and pick up bright currant notes through the lengthy finish. “A wine with shoulders,” explains Winemaker John Kane. “It makes an excellent companion to similarly brazen flavors such as osso bucco, braised short ribs or herb-encrusted rack of lamb.” When these grapes enter the winery, a majority of the winemaking is complete; our job is to guide and refine their inherent intensity. With its brawny mountain fruit character, we are able to retain 20 percent whole cluster through fermentation, capturing the vivacious fruit-driven flavors. We used the native Rockpile yeast isolate and maintained warm fermentation temperatures for maximum extraction, imparting a smooth texture and rich density across the back of the palate.
