2016 Jack Florence Sr. Rockpile Zinfandel
This vineyard is located on a rocky mountain ridge 1000 feet above Lake Sonoma in the far reaches of Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley. The fruit was hand-harvested from steep slopes in early October 2016. This 20-year old vineyard was grafted to the ancient St. Peter’s Clone of Zinfandel. This mountain-grown Zinfandel displays briary ripe blackberry, boysenberry, cassis, hints of chocolate, and magnificent minerality in the flavors.
