- Valdez Family Zinfandel Rockpile Botticelli Vnyd 2008 Product #26307 (In Stock)
Great follow-up to the WS 92 2007 edition, this is classic Rockpile - dark, bold, and powerful blackberry fruit, earth and spice flavors balanced by spot-on acidity and ripe tannins.
"Ulises Valdez is rapidly approaching rock-star status among Sonoma County winemakers. A Mexican immigrant who became a U.S. citizen through the 1986 amnesty law, he has been a successful vineyard manager for several wineries and is now a producer of stellar zinfandel and sauvignon blanc. This zin shows Rockpile characteristics of intense fruit that manages to balance the high alcohol (15.2 percent), with a focus and complexity on the finish that refuses to quit." *** Washington Post
