Our 2016 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is deep red in colour with juicy black plum, and peppery spice on the nose. On the palate, ripe dark fruit flavors shine with an added complexity of vanilla and clove provided by the oak ageing. Lingering flavors of brambly fruit and rustic Zinfandel are framed by soft tannins on the finish. This wine can be enjoyed now but will age nicely for about three to five years. - David Nakaji, Winemaker
2016 produced exceptional quality fruit in Dry Creek Valley. Warm temperatures in late winter and early spring pushed bud break ahead of schedule. The summer months were moderately warm with few heat spikes. We came in at the low end of average yields producing concentrated fruit. Overall, the mild season gave us wines of ample ripeness and great complexity. After harvest, the fruit was cold soaked to enhance the colour and flavor while avoiding harsh tannins. The individual logs were racked once and put into a combination of new Gamba French oak (40%), and one-and two-year-old American and Hungarian oak barrels for 11 months. The wine was bottled in January 2018.
Vineyard Notes
The Dry Creek Valley is home to some of California’s most definitive Zinfandel. The gently sloping hills, terra rossa soil, and mild climate make it the perfect locale for this varietal. Our 2016 Zinfandel was sourced from the Comstock Vineyard in the heart of Dry Creek Valley.
