Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 2021 Rockpile Zinfandel exudes detailed aromas of kirsch, orange rind, milk chocolate and warm toasted almond. It’s strikingly harmonious and layered with sweet brambly fruits and ripe Santa Rosa plum, with additional undertones of warm baking spices. This wine has great richness that complements the moderate density and refined tannins. It’s exceptional and will drink beautifully over the next 8-10 years.
Winemaker Notes
Uncle’s Block is part of my family’s original homestead and is now owned by my uncle, Chris Mauritson. Located at nearly 1,300 feet at the top of the Rockpile ridgeline, 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 limited-production Uncle’s Block Zin and the wine reflects the depth of character and complexity conferred by the stress the vines undergo to sustain themselves.
