Critic Review
Owen Bargreen
"This comes form the Rockpile appellation which is northwest of Healdsburg. Set near Lake Sonoma, in this rocky site, this reveals a wonderful aromatic intensity with deep dark fruit with dark florals alongside smoldering stones. Super-concentrated dark berries combine with light salinity and a beautiful astringency on the palate. Full-bodied, this is beautiful wine to consume now and over the next ten plus years."

Freshly Turned Earth

We love the exotic profile of our Cat's Cradle that is so unique to the Rockpile AVA. Deep ruby in color, aromas of blackberry, mulberry, meadow flowers and freshly turned earth fill the glass. The generous palate displays elegant weight and a savory hint of salinity that carries through to a supple finish.

Vintage NotesThe alluring 2021 vintage is remarkable for its low yields, which resulted in an extra degree of concentration in our wines. In a second year of drought, the vines grew quickly in the warm spring weather while our team judiciously managed watering block by block. By summer, the vines had set a lighter than average crop, and cooler weather in August allowed time for vineyard passes to finetune the fruit load and manage the canopy. After a smooth harvest season, we are excited about the flavor-packed 2021's.
Maybe try...
