Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Our 2019 Dry Creek Zinfandel opens to an engaging bouquet of fresh blackberry, lilac blossom, powdered sugar and a pulse of dried herb. Black cherry, shavings of vanilla pod with ground coffee marry perfectly with the refined tannins and beautiful staying power of this wine! Enjoy for the next 7-10 years.
Vineyard Notes
The early part of the 2019 growing season was marked by numerous days of heavy rainfall. While our typical annual total is around 40 inches, by mid-March that was easily exceeded by 10+ inches. Cooler days, in combination with the saturated soil profile, led to slow growth after budbreak in early April. However, momentum quickly grew as above-average temperatures hit in late April followed by bouts of rain in May, threatening the development of the blossoms into fruit.
Winemaker Notes
During the weeks before harvest, we were pleasantly surprised to see that the rain had little to no undue effect on the crop production. What ultimately resulted from this nearly perfect maturation season were wines outlined by perfectly ripe fruit, generous levels of nuance and velvety texture!
