Remridg is a small family-owned operation with some great vineyards of their own and some amazing sources to select from. The 2009 Rockpile is one of the most-sought-after vineyards in the state. Their winemaker does not need an intro – Jay Buoncristiani (Buoncristiani, Penche, etal). As for Zinfandel, it is one of the quintessential wine varietals of California. As such, the Remridg folks chose a label design reminiscent of the first California state-issued license plate of 1914. Approximately 125,000 pairs of plates, including roughly 20,000 motorcycle plates, were registered in this inaugural year. These timeless classics combine to create our first bonus red wine bottling. This was the FIRST license plate for the state, as prior to that they were issued by county! A little FYI on the license plate – RR = Mr and Mrs Remridg 927 (they were married on 9/27)

In the glass, this delicious wine explodes on the palate with blackberry jam, red cherry-plum, ripe red raspberry, maple and a splash of vanilla. Full in body, yet very elegant. This wine hits on all the flavor profiles–spicy red fruit, driven with just a hint of red and black pepper. Enjoy this wine with wood-fired pizza, a spicy pulled pork sandwich or six-hour smoked chicken. Only 77 cases produced!!
