RIDGE EAST BENCH ZINFANDEL DRY CREEK VALLEY SONOMA COUNTY 2016
Blackberry, cocoa licorice on the nose. Full-bodied palate with fig and plum fruit, chalky tannins, mineral and chaparral notes on the finish.
After two short harvests, the vines set a full crop. Each parcel was picked and crushed to separate fermentors. Natural yeast fermentations were slow but steady; we limited pump-overs to once daily to manage tannin extraction. After malolactic we chose six of the seven blocks for their depth of fruit, color and structure. Approachable as a young wine, this fine zinfandel will be at its best over the next eight years.
