WINEMAKER NOTES - "The violaceous color of this wine is like a regal kings robe. We love the bouquet of cinnamon stick, cardamom, and green fig that immediately entices. The uniqueness of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel stands out with the mix of red fruit textures - fresh, jammy, and dried. You may notice hints of raspberry, black olives, blackberry, crushed rose petals, and zaatar in our signature Zinfandel. Theres a seamless integration of Tahitian vanilla in the backgroundfrom a carefully selected mix of American and French oak. This wine has all the strength and power of a robust Zinfandel but wrapped with the gentle touch of Mother Nature and astute winemaking. Delightfully drinkable now with ample room for further character development over eight to ten years (2028-2030). Excellent with lamb or chicken shawarma, roasted carrots, grilled meats with rosemary, and smoked eggplant atop olive oil crostinis."
