Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Located at nearly 1,300 feet, at the top of the Rockpile ridgeline, Uncle’s Block is part of my family’s original homestead and is now owned by my uncle, Chris Mauritson. This vineyard is characterized by its eastern sun exposure, volcanic soil, steep slope, and lack of water. We hand select the best rows from this incredible site for our small offerings of Uncle’s Block. This is one of the most stressed vineyards we farm at Rockpile, and that character is captured in the wine.
Winemaker Notes
The 2019 Rockpile Zinfandel from Uncle’s Block has detailed aromas of black cherry liquor, violet petal, shavings of baker’s chocolate, and roasted almond. Strikingly harmonious and complex with sweet fresh black raspberry preserve, Santa Rosa plum flesh, and undertones of roasted coffee grounds. This wine has great freshness that complements the moderate density and refined tannins. It is exceptional and will drink beautifully over the next 8-10 years.
