Description

The 2015 Dry Creek Valley is a very classic, claret-style Zinfandel. Accompanying the depth of fruit flavours, you’ll find richness, complexity, spice and earthiness.

Actually a blend of 80% Zinfandel, 10% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignane and 5% Grenache, this has an intriguing multifaceted quality without overwhelming the inherent “Zinniness” of the wine. The Petite Sirah gives the wine darker earth notes and more structure, while Carignane enhances the spiciness and bright acidity, and Grenache brings softer mid-palate fruit layers.

Rich aromas of spice-laced dark fruit are followed by zesty notes of black pepper and warm brown spices. Bright flavours of juicy dark toned fruit – blackberry, dark cherry and plum – provide the core essence, while dried strawberry and black raspberry appear mid-palate and linger in the spicy, smokey finish.
