Just too pretty to believe, the Capo Creek Rose 2016 delivers notes of strawberry and watermelon Jolly Rancher(™). Made from Zinfandel, Syrah and Grenache, it is easy drinking so be sure to order plenty! Your friends will definitely be hogging the bottle.
Aromas of ripe cherries, hints of thyme and rosemary with a touch of smoky oak introduce the Pedroncelli Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Block 007, Dry Creek, followed through on the palate with black plum, mocha and hints of dried herbs. Soft tannins frame the mouthfeel and lead to a long finish that is simply elegant. The bright acidity and great structure point to great aging potential. Obviously this wine has no connection to a world famous British Special Agent. It’s simply the name of a vineyard block…Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2013 growing season was near perfect, with slightly more heat than its preceding vintage. The incredible growing conditions, coupled with lower crop, size yielded wines with succinct fruit and incredible focus.
High-toned berry fruit jumps out of the glass of the 2013 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Notes of cinnamon, baking spice and espresso bean add complexity to the hedonistic fruit. The entry is soft and lush, exhibiting flavors of rich oak and blackberry cobbler. The mouthfeel is seamless from start to finish, indicative of the perfectly integrated tannin and acid. Please enjoy this wine for the next 5-7 years.
