Tasting Notes:Our 2005 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel offers bright fruit, firm yet softening tannins, solid acids and vanillin oak notesall in harmonious balance. The intense blackberry aromas blend with subtle black pepper and a touch of earthiness. Hints of ripe cherry and cocoa join the lush, smooth core of blackberry and spicy black pepper. Creamy mocha and vanilla merge with the brambly berry essence for a delicious finish.Vineyards:The West Vineyard and the Funsten Vineyard sit a little above the valley floor on the benchland of Dry Creek Valley. The soils at both have a larger percentage of clay and gravel resulting in lower yields of intensely flavored and balanced fruit.
