“An incredibly great value. Should be 3x the price it is! Less complex, and still young, but lively, approachable, rich, and elegant. Mild tannins with a long, balanced finish.” - Ted via Vivino
Rockslide wines reflect long-standing relationships between seasoned winemakers, viticulturists, and remarkable vineyard sites. We adjust our approach each year according to the vintage to create what we hope is an undeniable expression of each grower’s hard work.
The heat in 2018 was no problem for these old vines, but the wines show that extra element of exoticism and vibrant fruit. Look for a bouquet of hyper-ripe black cherries, white pepper, wintergreen, cinnamon, and sweet vanilla. The palate is intense and expressive, with the kind of finish that just tells you that this will age for a long time yet is very drinkable now.
