2019 Black Boar Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley
A dual-vineyard estate wine based on the rich, opulent fruit from the dynamic duo of Anderson Ranch and Wine Creek Ranch. The wine's name was inspired by the wild boars that are apt to roam our hillside vineyards who simply cant resist our tasty fruit. They are wild and sauvage like our impeccable, bold Zinfandel.
Delicate garnet color that spreads into a bright ruby. The nose is full of dried leaves, forest floor and dark fruits of plum, current and blackberries. Medium bodied on the palate with powdery tannins and layers upon layers of intertwining flavors. A feminine and juicy example of Black Boar with brighter notes in the mouth. Blueberries, fresh strawberries, and a hint of caramel. Dark Chocolate and cocoa powder weave their way through along with a touch of toasted coconut. The finish is long with a hint of bitter herb to keep up with the hallmark Quivira acidity. Amazing with classic pairings of BBQ brisket, grilled meats, and wild game but light enough for salmon over mashed parsnips.
