Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
|Appellation:||Dry Creek Valley|
|Fermentation & Aging:||Fermented in stainless steel and French oak. The wine was aged for 18 months in 25% new French oak and the remainder in neutral French oak barrels.|
This vintage from the Dry Creek Valley is everything we look for in a Zinfandel: Rich, ripe, balanced, and undeniably Zinfandel. Notes of blackberry, briar, earth, and a subtle framework of oak dominate the bouquet, while black pepper and vibrant, jammy flavors fan out on the palate. It is a generous and youthful wine that will best reward short term consumption and cellaring.
