"Including 10% Petite Sirah and from a handful of sites in the Rockpile AVA, the 2018 Zinfandel Cat's Cradle was fermented in a mix of concrete and stainless steel and spent 11 months in 39% new French oak. Mulled plums, dark chocolate, tobacco, and scorched earth notes emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful on the palate. The Petite Syrah changes the wine substantially, and this is a blacker fruited, richer, meaty Zinfandel to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years."

Rockpile AVA

When you’re here you’d swear you’re on another planet. Harsh, exposed, rocky, and 1,200 feet above Lake Sonoma, this otherworldly environment reflects the struggle that defines great wine. Wines from this remote, slope-side vineyard are known for their unique minerality, brambly fruit, and intense tannic structure.

We love the exotic profile of this wine that is so unique to Zinfandel from this region. Deep ruby in color, Cat’s Cradle has nuanced aromas of potpourri, spicy clove, and sun-ripened blackberry that rise from the glass. The generous palate displays a fleshy and polished texture full of concentrated flavors. Earthy notes of terra cotta and licorice tea provide grounding balance and lead to a supple and lingering finish.
