The Federalist Visionary Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley

The Federalist Visionary Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley

Parcels of Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley vineyards, just about perfect for growing this grape, are fermented separately to preserve the characteristics of each; the average length of time on the skins is 17 days. After pressing and malolactic fermentation in barrels, the wine is matured for 15 months in a mixture of French and American oak barrels, 25% new. Fruit forward with blackberry and black cherry aromas and spicy notes; the palate is balanced and mouth-filling with a rich texture and long finish.
