Dry Creek Valley, CaliforniaNalle Zinfandel is a classic Dry Creek Valley Zin made by Andrew Nalle under the supervision of his famous father, winemaker Doug Nalle. Nalle is a small family run winery with father, mother and son all having important roles in daily operations. Since the first vintage in 1984 Doug Nalle has refused to give in to the changing fashion for high alcohol, jammy zins. As a result, they remain off the radar of the mainstream wine critics, and that's OK with them. With modest alcohol levels, tasteful oak treatment, and incredible age-ability, this estate remains one of the benchmark Dry Creek Zinfandels being made today. We enjoyed a visit at their distinctive Healdsburg winery in September 2012, just two days before crush, with great anticipation in the air for a promising new vintage!Nalle Zinfandel is 87% Zinfandel blended with 9% Petite Sirah, 3% Carignane and 1% Mourvedre, Alicante Bouchet and Golden Chasselas. The wine is garnet red with medium body--expressive rather than blockbuster in style. Imagine doses of intense strawberry-pomegranate dipped in crme fraiche. Flavors of spicy Dry Creek blackberry and raspberry finish with soft, velvety tannins. The wine is aged for 11 months in 25% new French oak before bottling.Enjoy Nalle Zinfandel with roast pork, grilled chicken, BBQ ribs, grilled vegetables and cheeses.
