The Jack’s Cabin Vineyard is the proverbial last piece of the puzzle in our quartet of single vineyard Rockpile Zinfandels. We make four Rockpile Zinfandels for a reason: the incredible diversity of terroir.
Consisting primarily of the Josephine series of Loam soil, the vineyard has a southern sun exposure and is planted at roughly 10-15 degrees slope. Relatively hidden from the coastal breezes that howl through Rockpile, this vineyard is the least stressed of all the blocks and the wine reflects it.
Opulent and lush, the Jack’s Cabin Zinfandel is the jammiest of all of the Rockpile Zinfandels. There’s no mistaking the raspberry and blackberry in the nose, but it’s the subtle hints of chocolate, vanilla and black pepper that heighten your senses. The mouth is big and round and full of soft velvet. For all of the ripe fruit, this wine still exhibits the Rockpile signature of great intensity and full tannins. The finish continues to differentiate Jack’s Cabin from the other Rockpile Zinfandels as the vibrant acidity leaves the palate craving more. This goes to show, there is a Rockpile Zinfandel for everyone, and for some of us, there may be four.
