Our 2010 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel has aromas of blackberry jam, cassis and subtle black pepper. Intense flavors of dried black cherries and concentrated jam are supported by nuances of vanilla bean and toffee, creating a long, supple finish.
The grapes for our 2010 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel were destemmed and fermented in cone sweep fermentors for five to seven days at a maximum temperature of 90˚F. After primary fermentation was complete, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the tannins. The wine was aged on its lees in a combination of new and used American oak barrels to enhance the mouthfeel, and was filtered prior to bottling.
