Crafted from hundred-year-old vines, this Zinfandel displays the wild nature of the ancient vineyard. Bramble berries and wild blackberries define its core, unraveling to reveal subtle notes of white pepper and baker’s spice. Deep and dark, this wine manages to keep a sense of balance while pushing the edge of hedonism.
One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days, bookended by cool nights, allow grapes to reach full phenolic ripeness and balance. Carerras Vineyard is an amazing display of the intensity and power that ancient Zinfandel vines harness.
