Variety: 77% zinfandel, 18% petite sirah, 5% petite verdot
Appellation: Dry Creek Valley
Sensory Notes: Made predominantly using grapes from our famed Lily Hill Vineyard, this wine offers bold dark berry layers of blackberry and boysenberry, with underlying notes of cloves and plum. On the palate, it is big and rich, with a broad, mouth-coating presence that carries the wine to a long, complex finish.
Vineyard Notes: To showcase the classic Dry Creek Valley style, we created this wine by artfully blending hillside and benchland fruit. Our estate vineyard, Lily Hill is perched above the north end of the valley and provides dark, concentrated grapes, the result of the rugged and ‘stressed’ hillside vines. We sourced the benchland portion of this blend from several vineyards, whose grapes bring deep, red fruit notes and a soft, lush texture. The petit verdot adds a depth and color, while the petite sirah contributes to this beautiful wine’s structure.
Cellar Recommendations: Enjoy this wine through 2025.
