Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is so lovely, with its perfumed aromas of violets, black raspberry, clove, and pepper that we think it might be considered one of the most fruit-forward and intense Dry Creek zinfandels that we have yet produced.

Taste:Gobs of black raspberry and concentrated cherry fruit, black current, chocolate, clove spice, velvety texture on the mid-palate, complex, long sweet finish of black raspberry fruit, sweet chocolate and spice.

My Notes:

About Dashe:

In 1996, the husband and wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe founded Dashe Cellars. Focused on crafting exceptional single-vineyard wines, Dashe Cellars blends the two winemaker’s combined 40-plus years of experience at such noted wineries as Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château La Dominique, Ridge Vineyards, Cloudy Bay, Far Niente, Chappellet, and Schramsberg Wine Cellars. Drawing on this wealth of experience, the Dashes create vineyard-focused wines that capture the complexity and character of top vineyards throughout Sonoma County and beyond.
