2016 Zinfandel ~ Dry Creek Valley ~ 750 ml
This highly acclaimed 2016 vintage is complex and completely delicious. Garnet in color with juicy, deep red and blue fruit on the nose, along with secondary aromas of purple flowers and spice appearing as the wine opens. Juicy and pure flavors of dark cherry, blackberry and fresh plum mingle with the seductive notes of vanilla and caramel on the finish. This is one complex Zinfandel with perfect depth, balance and acidity. A great Zin to age if some of it makes it to your cellar.
The fruit for this release comes from two well-established vineyards right near our winery. Pauline’s Vineyard is directly across the street and Timber Crest Farms is right outside our winery door. They both represent the heart of Dry Creek Valley and have done so for many, many years. In years when the vineyards have different flavor profiles, we produce two vineyard designates. But in years when the flavors are very similar we blend them together and make the Dry Creek Valley blend.
