Dry Creek Valley, a subappellation of Sonoma County, is nestled between the Alexander Valley to the east and the Russian River Valley to the southwest. Throughout the summer growing season the area benefits from warm temperatures during the day and coastal cooling in the late afternoon, though fog seldom impacts the region during the day. Long warm days are ideal for bringing grapes to ripeness while cool nights preserve natural acidity. Zinfandel loves heat, which gives the grape its distinctive jammy note. Zinfandel thrives in Dry Creek Valley, where it is the most recognized red grape varietal grown. The 2007 vintage commenced after a warm summer. The heat held during the vintage and fully mature grapes were harvested that were bursting with varietal flavor, had fleshy textures and smooth finishes.
Ripe and zesty, featuring jammy plum and black raspberry fruit, with layered notes of toasty cinnamon, pepper and sage. Finishes with appealingly rustic tannins. Drink now through 2016. 825 cases made.
