This is the second vintage from a young zinfandel vineyard planted atop the eastern bench of Dry Creek Valley.
A lot going on, you can taste blackberry jam, chutney, exotic spice, toasty oak. Sweet briar fruit entry. Full-bodied, structured, with fruit-coated tannins. Powerful, lengthy finish. Classic Dry Creek Valley zinfandel. After twelve months of barrel age, the wine has integrated beautifully. Enjoyable now, it will continue to develop over the next five to seven years.
