Food Pairings for Christopher Creek Zinfandel Russian River Valley
The 2009 Dry Creek Zinfandel is the 12th vintage for Christopher Creek Winery. We produced this wine from grapes grown at two vineyards with vines of varying ages, each contributing their own characteristics, and by fermenting the grapes in small open top tanks with 2 punch downs daily to every “pump over.”
Classical Dry Creek Zin in style, the wine exhibits a medium-dark ruby hue, with raspberry fruit, hints of vanilla and caramel, black pepper, clove, and cherry pie with a juicy mouth feel, a rich mid-pallet and a long spicy finish that lingers. While still quite young, this intense, perfectly balanced and bright wine is remarkably approachable with medium tannins and an aging potential of about 3-4 years.
390 cases produced.
Aged in American Oak.
