Critic Review
Jeb Dunnuck, Critic
"The 2019 Zinfandel Cat's Cradle is similarly hued but has a purer, crisper, more youthful vibe as well as ample plum and berry fruits, notes of sandalwood, peppery herbs, orange zest, and spice, medium to full body, ripe tannins, and a terrific finish."

We love the exotic profile of our Cat's Cradle that is so unique to the Rockpile AVA. Deep ruby in color, aromas of star anise, dark plum, wild brambly berries and dried flowers fill the glass. The generous palate displays a polished texture with well-balanced tannin and a subtle vein of salinity that carries through to a supple and lingering finish.

Vintage NotesThe 2019 vintage began with a wet spring bringing three inches of rain in May. In response to the late rains our vineyards received diligent attention to control vigorous vine growth. A long Indian summer followed with mild weather, allowing the fruit to ripen at slow, even place. The long picking windows bore fruit with beautiful freshness at optimal ripeness. The resulting wines are exceptionally elegant.
