Capo Creek Ranch Zinfandel 2015
I am always impressed by what people did before the wine world. Here's two sisters – Mary and Nadine Roy who owned and operated a radiology business in Illinois and now have been running Capo Creek Ranch for the last 4 years. Mary Roy is the mother of six and previous owner/lead physician of Midwest Center for Advanced Imaging, specializing in MRI and Women's Imaging. Nadine Roy was a co-owner and executive director of that business and has now been certified as a sommelier and works alongside her sister, the winemaker.
Their 2015 Zinfandel from Dry Creek is medium-bodied wine with dark cherry and pomegranate on the palate. This wine explodes with splendid fruitiness followed by spice – perfect with grilled meats, BBQ, and brilliant red-orange sunsets.
