Fortunately I have a good friend who is heavily invested in Rockpile Zins and is furthermore willing to share them with yours truly. I have yet to taste anything less than a superb wine from this winery. The 2018 Petroglyph is no exception. Silky smooth despite its young age, the alcohol level lost in layers of voluptuous berry/plum fruit. Extremely rich and seamless, not quite as liqueur-like as (for example) the behemoth Martinelli Zins. Wonderfully rich, spicy core undergirds the whole enterprise. - HK 2020-10-14
