Dry Creek Valley
We are thrilled to introduce the debut release of our first new Zinfandel in several years, the 2019 Wine Creek Ranch Primitivo. This wine is 100% from the Primitivo clone of Zinfandel, which originated in the Puglia region of Italy, and is 100% from Wine Creek Ranch, our home estate, thus CCOF-certified organic. We have patiently waited until vine age, and in 2019 everything came together in terms of wine quality and has warranted showcasing this special Zinfandel selection.
Immediately announcing itself as unique amongst our bottlings, our 2019 Primitivo expresses a different character than anything else we make. Black cherry and plum notes lead to a heft of ripe strawberry on the nose, which then gives way to a complex, deep spice character and undertones of cola. The palate offers bright and welcoming acidity and educated tannins that only serve to enhance the attractive flavors present. We expect this wine to only gain in complexity and intensity over the next five to eight years.
