Dry Creek Valley
Inspired by the great Tuscan wines, our offering melds the elegance and beautiful high-toned fruit of Sangiovese with the brooding dark fruit and rustic charm of Montepulciano while showcasing the dramatic influence of our Dry Creek Valley home.
With a beautiful dark purple center which fades out to a bright ruby rim, this wine speaks Italian with an American accent. Blackberry, boysenberry and plum lead the way and are followed by classic notes of tobacco leaf, blackberry and a hint of dill from the Montepulciano. These flavors are then married with red cherry and tomato leaf hints from the Sangiovese. The acid and tannin are both just north of medium to hold the wine together with a light grip. There is a rustic charm to this wine, but it also remains fresh, high toned, and polished.
