Varietal: 96% zinfandel, 2% petite sirah, 2% syrah
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley
Sensory Notes: With a pretty floral nose of dark ripe fruit, the 2014 Lily Hill zinfandel exhibits classic and lively Dry Creek flavors of blackberries, black cherries, licorice and exotic spices. The wine has a silky texture with a full mouthfeel, intertwined with a smokey cigar box finish. The incorporation of a small amount of petite sirah pushes the finish into rich, substantial length.
Vineyard Notes: Lily Hill Vineyard has become synonymous with making wines of elegance and substance. From the first plantings in 1915 to the blocks planted in 2001, this hillside, sloping vineyard benefits from cooler nights and warmer days.
Cellar Recommendation: Enjoy now through 2023.
