Florence Vineyard’s Inaugural Zinfandel, 2020 Rockpile Reserve introduced to rave reviews

Two Puffs, 91 points, July 2022 9% Petite Sirah. If tasting no other Zin from the 2020 vintage than this one, it would be hard to believe that the vintage was as problematic as it was. It hits all of the right marks from varietal accuracy to deep and downright luscious, beautifully defined blackberry fruit, and it comes dressed up in a lovely bit of sweet, complementary oak. Its heat is exceptionally well buffered for a wine that is just short of 16.0% alcohol, and it matches its very considerable richness and size with an equally commendable sense of careful crafting. Drink it soon or drink it later and know that either option will show it to be a memorable Zin well worth seeking out.
