Food Pairings for Plungerhead Zinfandel Old Vine Dry Creek Valley
External Reviews for Plungerhead Zinfandel Old Vine Dry Creek Valley
Our 2011 Dry Creek Zinfandel is inky purple in color. The aromas show notes of dusty old Dry Creek terrior, candy cap mushroom, concentrated black raspberry, fig preserves, white pepper, and fresh baked cinnamon rolls. In the mouth, you will see flavors of sugar sweetened blackberries, cherry sorbet, cardamom spice, warm nutmeg, Madagascar vanilla bean, wild blueberry, and finishes with notes of fresh figs, thyme, blackberry cobbler, and southern sweet tea.This 2011 vintage has me thinking of smoked turkey legs with sweet potato French fries and fried okra. This blend is refined enough to pair with choice grade steaks as well as anything off the barbeque. Mediterranean fare would also pair well as would lamb dishes. Or try with a dessert course instead of port, with bittersweet chocolate mousse or a dark chocolate tarte with fresh whipped cream. - WinerypH: 3.67TA: 0.62 g/100mLsAlcohol: 14.5%Residual Sugar: 2.8 g/100mLs
Your first impression is of deep purple color and enticing Zinfandel aromas; blueberry, fresh fig, black pepper, and cardamom spice. Then your first sip; dark black fruits, dried cherry, dark chocolate, black raspberry, exotic vanilla, and mocha. The finish continues to dip into the dark blackberry cobbler flavors continuing to show the combination of French and American oak influences; vanilla, cinnamon bark, and cedar.
