Plungerhead Old Vine Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2015

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Winemaker Blend Notes: Dark purple hue with ruby edges, our Dry Creek Zinfandel has aromas of roasted walnut, black cherry, dried fig, Mexican dark chocolate, and sweet balsamic reduction. The flavors turn toward true Dry Creek nuances of dark currants, tart cherry, graphite, toasted hazelnut, blackstrap molasses, and finishes with rich tannins, espresso bean, dark caramel, and fresh cranberry. Food Pairings: Our Plungerhead Dry Creek Zin is a big, extracted wine. A porterhouse steak topped with crispy shallots and a loaded baked potato, prime rib with all the fixings is another good choice, or leg of lamb roasted with Indian spices served alongside grilled root vegetables.

Plungerhead:
Plungerhead is a brand of Zinfandel produced by The Other Guys, the hipster offshoot of Sebastiani family wine brands. The bottle features a ZORK closure (a red tear-tab stopper) that matches the Monty Python-esque  label image of the bespoke, mustachioed gent with the red plunger on his head. These affordable Zinfandels have gained popularity not only for their unique packaging, but also their value-driven quality.
