Variety: 89% zinfandel, 6% petite sirah, 5% carignane
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley
Sensory Notes: Lively notes of kirsch and blackcurrant evolve into leather and black pepper, with a touch of cranberry. A vibrantly-textured mouthfeel finishes with focused, lean tannins.
Vineyard Notes: This wine comes from a vineyard on the eastern edge of Dry Creek Valley. Planted in the early 90’s, this parcel experiences intense daytime summer heat, before its elevation allows it to rapidly cool down at night. A great deal of handwork is performed to achieve the proper ripeness at harvest. Clusters are thinned up to five times before harvest to allow the remaining fruit to fully ripen.
Cellar Recommendations: Enjoy this wine through 2021.
