Reserve Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley (2015)
Weighty yet elegant this Zinfandel has a deep, rich color and spicy aromas of clove, vanilla and cherry galette that precede mouth-filling flavors of dark, crushed berries, melted chocolate and baking spices. Velvety in texture, this is an opulent Zin with a long finish. Critic Jeb Dunnuck calls this wine, “a beautiful Zinfandel that does everything right.”

The grapes were hand-sorted and underwent an extended cold-soak for five days. Infrequent pumpovers during fermentation allowed for greater color extraction and the ability to control tannin levels. We then complemented this freshy wine by ageing it in 60% new French oak barrels for 20 months to achieve full integration.
