Our Single Vineyard Wines
Rockpile has proven ideal for the development of our 10 distinctly different hillside vineyards. Rockpile Wines are everything you'd expect: intense, powerful and complex. We are extremely proud to be the largest grower and producer of Rockpile wines.
For our 2016 Rockpile Cabernet Sauvignon, we blended in nearly 10% of our Rockpile Malbec to lock in the beautiful color and add subtle floral notes. The small percentages of Cabernet Franc (4%) and Merlot (3%) added more red fruit and a hint of fresh forest floor, while the 1% of Petit Verdot brought a level of seriousness to the wine that we loved. Aromas are rich in ripe black fruit, roasted coffee, anise and sweet loam, with a beautiful pulse of shaved nutmeg.
Named after one of the area’s earliest settlers (who was also a moonshiner), the Jack’s Cabin site produces some of our most prized fruit. The 2017 vintage of this Zinfandel is beautifully detailed in its aromatic profile, featuring candied red fruit, milk chocolate shavings, sweet baking spices and nuances of vanilla bean pod. The seamless entry reveals coffee grounds and chocolate covered cherries followed by perfumed dried underbrush and sweet loam.
The nose on this vintage is explosive and complex, with aromas of fresh-baked blackberry pie, toasted almond grounds dusted with dark cocoa and the classic touches of savory roasted herbs and sweet earth. Full-bodied and concentrated, this wine is not shy in delivering beautifully perfumed fruit, seamlessly tied in with a plush and velvety palate.
The 2017 Cemetery Zinfandel is a rock star. The nose is well set up with dark black fruits, classic briary notes and sweet earthy tones. This Zinfandel is concentrated and harmonious for such an energetic wine.
