Overview of the Wine                                                                     
Since 1868, the Mauritson family has been growing grapes in the Dry Creek Valley. Our great-great-great grandfather S.P. Hallengren, a grape growing pioneer in the Rockpile region, first planted vines in 1884, shipping every ounce of his wine back to Sweden. Our family's Rockpile homestead and ranch grew to 4,000 acres by the early 1960s when all but 700 ridgetop acres was acquired by the Army Corps of Engineers in order to develop Lake Sonoma. The vineyards shown in many of our historical family photos are now under water! For the next 30 years, the Rockpile property would serve mostly for sheep grazing.

Six generations and more than 150 years later, we're earning a reputation for outstanding winemaking along with our sought-after harvests. Opened in April 2004, our winemaking facility and tasting room is located at 2859 Dry Creek Road, on the corner of Dry Creek and Lytton Springs roads in Healdsburg. We can't wait to welcome you and share our wines.

Named after one of the area’s earliest settlers, the Jack’s Cabin site has quite a colorful history. Though Jack Ireland’s primary occupation was clearing land for sheep and cattle grazing, he was most known for his moonshine and disregard for the law. Apparently, he spent many a night in the county jail. When my father, and grandfather before him, were growing up on the property, only the tattered remnants of Jack’s house remained. The old decrepit structure only strengthened the notion that the “cabin” was haunted, and thus was born the legend of Jack’s Cabin!

Planted at nearly 950 feet in elevation and roughly 15 degrees slope, the Jack’s Cabin Vineyard is one of Rockpile’s premier sites. It has a southern sun exposure and is planted with the meandering natural slope of the bench. Relatively hidden from the coastal breezes that howl through Rockpile, this vineyard is the least stressed of all the blocks.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Our 2021 Jack’s Cabin Zinfandel is a delicious and complex wine. Shy in its initial presentation, this incredible Rockpile Zinfandel is just starting to reveal its detail and incredible energy. Aromatics include sticky blackberry compote, espresso grounds and purple iris petal, with a soft dusting of cedar and vanilla. A beautiful intensity persists on the palate, with explosive fresh blue and black fruits, coffee bean and dried herbs. An almost chewy texture balances generous tannins and a lingering fresh finish. Please enjoy over the next 5-8 years.

96 Points - Ian Blackburn
Dark colors of black, purple and garnet; nose of minerals and rock with dense fruit skins of purple plums and purple flowers. Quality wood notes support this youthful giant - and its claret styling will continue to age gracefully for a decade or more.  Finish is flush with tannins and length - a great ride.  Color 14.5, Aroma 24, Body 24, Overall 33.5 = 96
