The Federalist Dry Creek Zinfandel
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
Our Federalist Dry Creek Zinfandel is hand-crafted to bring out the true individuality of this hearty, decidedly American grape. Our vineyard in the Southern edge of Dry Creek is just a mile from the Russian River with cool and foggy conditions until mid morning, keeping the fruit from over-ripening and allowing for a longer growing season. This produces more mature fruit, and results in rich, full-bodied flavor characteristics. Dark purple color. Dark fruits (plum, blackberry), brambly, black pepper, clove and cinnamon aromas. Nice entrance, full-bodied with a dense mid-palate and long, lingering finish.
