Carol Shelton Rocky Reserve Rockpile Florence Vineyard Zinfandel 2010
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
Wine SpectatorFocused and well-structured, with ripe cherry and grilled sage aromas and complex plum, cracked white pepper and licorice flavors that finish with firm but ripe tannins. Drink now through 2020. 416 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastWrapped in layers of red berries and licorice, it's thick and rich, offering mouthfuls of accessible fruitiness amid an interior core of leather and high heat. Pull it out for grilled meats slathered in sweet barbecue sauce.
