2018 Zinfandel ~ Dry Creek Valley ~ 750 ml
This limited-production Zinfandel shows deep complexity that hints to the grapes’ extended time on the vine. The aromas are breathtaking with layers of plum, cacao and dark cherry. On the palate, savor ultra-ripe plum, sweet cherry and black pepper with each sip. As the wine opens, it unveils even deeper plum and cherry notes. This complex, balanced and well-structured wine offers fine-grain tannins and a long finish. We recommend snagging a few extra bottles to enjoy later as it is sure to disappear quickly. Will pair brilliantly with braised lamb shanks, skirt steak fajitas or sausage puttanesca.
2018 Vintage Technical Info
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.
