2016 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel
Home to some of the world's most renowned Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley was built by multi-generations of farmers whose commitment to the land still shows today. Driving the dusty backroads of this region, vineyards of gnarly old-vine zin beckon to tell their story.
Always on the hunt for new, exciting vineyards, when we came across the LeVois Vineyard in Dry Creek, we knew we had found something profoundly special. A beautifully terraced vineyard very close to Lake Sonoma, Le Vois sits at an elevation of 950 ft in an amphitheater configuration which allows for a range of afternoon sun exposures and ensures a wine with great complexity and a range of flavors. We have been working with this stunning site in preparation for the 2016 vintage.
Our inaugural vintage, the 2016 brings together everything you'd expect from Dry Creek Valley. Brilliant ruby in color, fresh aromas of summer peaches, vanilla, and cinnamon entice while flavors of ripe fruit, caramel, and blackberry jam keep you coming back for more. Great length and richness on the finish allow for a long, slow savoring of the wine.
Close your eyes and luxuriate in a road trip to Dry Creek Valley.
