Zinfandel 2013, Dry Creek Valley
Though all of our Zinfandels are made from Dry Creek Valley grapes, our Dry Creek blend, as we refer to it, is a wine that we hope reflects the overall Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel terroir, as opposed to a single-vineyard character. Selecting four vineyards (Borkow, Bradford Mountain Estate, Funsten and West) located throughout the appellation, gives us a cross section of soil types and microclimates within Dry Creek Valley that are reflected in the flavors.
Our 2013 Dry Creek blend is a very classic, claret-style Zinfandel. Accompanying the depth of fruit flavors, you’ll find richness, complexity, spice and earthiness. Compared to our other Zinfandels, this bottling contains the highest percentage of blending varietals to give maximum spice and an intriguing multifaceted quality without overwhelming the inherent “Zinniness” of the wine.
