Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2014
Dry Creek Valley produces wines with densely-concentrated character and rich flavor. The best Zinfandel is grown in the benchlands, where dry rocky soils provide the perfect terroir. The 2014 vintage had a long and dry growing season with mild temperatures making for nearly perfect conditions for producing superior Zinfandel.
Harvest of our Dry Creek Zinfandel began late September and lasted until mid-October with each vineyard being picked after it reached its maximum flavor. After fermentation, the wines were kept on the skins for three weeks. The young wine was pressed and settled before transfer into American and French oak barrels for 19 months. After aging was complete, our finest quality barrels were carefully selected and blended for bottling.
