2016 Black Boar Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley
750 ml - $48.00
A block selection from our Estate Zinfandel Vineyards, Black Boar is an unparalleled expression of Quivira Vineyards' Zinfandel. The bold, rich style and red spicy fruit exemplify the qualities that define what is unique about Dry Creek Valley. This wine is crafted in the vineyard and finishes barrel aging in the cellar two years later for optimum balance. The centerpiece of Quivira's Zinfandel collection, every vintage has received 90+ points across all major wine publications since its 2013 inception.
The low yields of the 2015 vintage resulted in a Zinfandel of uncommon density, flavor, and structure. A beguiling spiciness complements the upfront dark fruit-plum, blackberry, and bing cherry followed by hints of chocolate in the long finish. The generous entry is framed by juicy acidity and suave tannins. Black Boar's sense of place, aromatic purity and signature Dry Creek flavors ensure the wine has a long life ahead of it.
