Varietal: 98% zinfandel, 2% syrah
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley
Sensory Notes: Compelling aromas of dark mocha and dried lavendar. Tart, bright fruit and bing cherry flavors that lead into leather and baking spice. Beautiful structure that gives a lush yet vibrant finish.
Vineyard Notes: This wine comes from a vineyard on the eastern edge of Dry Creek Valley. Planted in the early '90s, this parcel experiences intense daytime summer heat, before it's 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 Recommendation: Enjoy now through 2023.
