2017 LeVois 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 through 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, LeVois 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 flavor.
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, nectarines, jasmine, cinnamon and nutmeg bloom out of the glass. Also, you'll think you're carrying a full peach basket –– peaches, peach cobbler, peach blossom –– also a staple in Dry Creek Valley. You'll taste ripe yellow peaches and peach crumble with a hint of vanilla on top along with dried cherry, rosemary, and thyme to complete an elegant finish.
This wine is very smooth with a good build-out and good definition. We love the really nice acid and the fresh, savory finish!
