2006 Seghesio "Rockpile" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1040828

90 points and one star from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "There is no hiding the fact that this dramatic wine is very much geared to unabashed ripeness, but its stands out from the late-harvest crowd by dint of its strong sense of fruit and tastes of blackberries in spite of its heat. It is a powerhouse effort to be sure, and it will need pairing with hearty braised meats or very rich cheeses, but it never lets go of its Zinfandel soul and is sure to delight fans of the style." (January 2009) Don't mess with the masters. The Seghesio family first started planting zinfandel in Sonoma County in 1895 and they really know their stuff. Rockpile Ridge is a narrow, ridge top appellation tottering 1,200 feet above Sonoma's Dry Creek Valley. The steep hillside vineyards have shallow, rocky topsoils that lend themselves to concentrated wines like this one. Lots of briar fruit and white pepper spice appear on the wine's nose, complemented by mineral, cherry, blackberry and herb undertones on the palate. The tannins are ripe and sweet and boosted by oak spice. Full-bodied, decadent and a great representation of the appellation.
