Rockpile Vineyard

A lot of chatter about new Zinfandel and old favorites this week due to the 2011 ZAP festival in San Francisco.  I've always enjoyed Russian River Zinfandels, low octane and pretty such as Davis Family Vineyards and Pellegrini. But a few others stand out particularly from Storrs in the Santa Cruz Mountains, Ridge, Storybook in Napa & T-Vine Cellars, in my book of taste. Excited to learn more today about other Zins...
A few years ago I had the honor of attending the inaugural release of the and of course atop Rockpile Vineyard. An epic day and I must confess, the most breathtaking zinfandel vineyard I've seen yet.  More after ZAP... Cheers! Ali
