2023 Press Democrat North Coast Wine Challenge Review
BEST OF CLASS
Judges notes say "Crowd pleaser, very fruity, jammy, ripe fruit, hints of bittersweet chocolate, spicy."
Wine Tasting Notes
Astonishing aromas of wild blackberry preserves, white peppercorn, and rosehip seduce you in for a sip, allowing flavors of huckleberry pie, morello cherry, and star anise to take over the palate. Silky-smooth tannins linger throughout the finish along with notes of black fig, cassis, and hazelnut. The epitome of Dry Creek Zinfandel, this makes the perfect pairing for potato gnocchi with duck Bolognese and fried sage or Wagyu beef short ribs with yellow corn and sautéed porcini mushrooms. Enjoy now or cellar through the next decade for additional development in the bottle.
