So what if it only has one winery and has only bee designated as an AVA since 2002?

Every time I get the opportunity to enjoy a Rockpile wine it reminds me I need to revisit this region more often.  Zinfandel is probably the best cultivar and maybe that’s why it doesn’t get more rave reviews?  But hey, I’m a zinfandel fan. 

Drop a firm and fruity Rockpile zin on top of a classic New York steak standwich with fried onion straws and blue cheese crumbles and hide the women and children from a palate gone wild.  I’ve gotta say, that pairing is one of my all time favorites.

Most any wine shop carries a few selections to choose from.  Grab one and experiment yourself and let me know what your experience is.
