Dashe Dry Creek Zinfandel 2009
from Sonoma County, California
Reddish-purple in color. Black raspberry, cassis, and concentrated black cherry fruit, chocolate, clove spice, good acidity, velvety texture on the mid-palate, complex, long sweet finish of black cherry fruit, licorice, and peppery spice.
This is a classic example of a Dry Creek Zinfandel: elegant, balanced, and layered with loads of fruit flavors and a velvety, voluptuous texture. The trademark characteristics of zinfandel from this area are in abundance—black raspberry and cassis fruit, mineral and earth, and clove and black pepper spice—and we expect this wine to develop and improve nicely over the next five or so years.
This wine is ideally paired with grilled meats, roast chicken, pasta dishes with robust sauces, lamb entrees, or simply as a delicious aperitif wine before dinner.
