Starfish Pinot Noir

Rockfish Rockpile Zinfandel 2008

Tasting Notes:

Seemless integration of French oak spice and classic zinfandel blackberry unfold in and rich and complex wine that is easy to enjoy.

Technical Notes:

2008 was a very small crop due to the worst frost in decades. However, the remaining grapes were complex and concentrated.
The 2008 Rockfish Zinfandel is made from 100% Zinfandel grapes. Grapes were destemmed and crushed directly into small open top fermenters and punched down by hand. The must was cold soaked for 24 hours then allowed to warm slowly with the onset of native yeast fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was pressed with a small, artisanal basket press, settled, then racked to oak barrels. The wine was bottled in August of 2010.
