2014 Dry Creek Zinfandel

Estate

Winemaking Notes

Ruby red colored, with fresh aromas of ripe blackberries, cherry pie, black pepper and dusty earth, this full bodied wine was aged for 15 months in primarily French oak barrels, which added layers of toast and baking spices. Elegant and silky, this wine has refined tannins and is extremely well balanced.

Food pairings

Enjoy this Zinfandel now with Manchego cheese, bacon wrapped dates or spiced barbecue dishes, or cellar for enjoyment over the next two to four years.

History

The Dry Creek Valley is legendary for producing great Zinfandel, and we were fortunate to discover an excellent vineyard there in 2007 that has been enhancing our Knotty Vines Zin ever since. In recent years, that vineyard has truly begun to shine. We decided to bottle a small amount separately to highlight its unique character which reflects the briary, peppery nature of Dry Creek Zinfandel.

The Vineyards

A mild, dry winter encouraged early bud break in Sonoma County in 2014. The growing season was very warm overall, but tempered by some overcast days in late July and late August, plus a heavy drizzle in early September. Ideal ripening conditions followed through harvest on October 3.
