Rustic flavors like brambly and stony aren’t found in your typical Zinfandel flavor spectrum. Then again, with its complex undertones of terra cotta, brambly fruit, violets, and black pepper, Cats Cradle isn’t a typical Zinfandel. It’s a big wine, with a sensation of opulent extract on the mid-palate and well-built tannin carries through lengthy finish.


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.
Limit 3 bottles

Wine Facts

LOCATED IN THE REMOTE northwestern corner of Sonoma County that spans over 15,000 acres, a sparse 190 acres of the Rockpile AVA are planted to vineyards. We are thrilled to source fruit from the Mauritson family, grape growing pioneers whose history in the area dates back to 1880s. Grown in an almost otherworldly landscape, the wine from these mountain slopes is defined by brambly fruit, a unique minerality, and an intense tannic structure. Harsh, exposed, rocky, and 1200 feet above sea level, this environment reflects the struggle that defines great wine.
