Dashe Cellars Zinfandel 2018
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
This seductive wine shows a lot of polish and nuanced oak spices for a Zinfandel, as cinnamon, cedar and vanilla mingle with deep, dark-blackberry and black-currant flavors. Blended from various Northern California vineyards, it's laced with fine-grained tannins and will certainly improve through at least 2025.
Medium ruby, the 2018 Zinfandel Vineyard Select has restrained, shy aromas of warm red and black berry fruit with notes of earth and potpourri. The palate is medium-bodied, offering a touch more than the nose with a hint of stone fruits. It has a very soft, gently chalky texture, good freshness and a simple finish.
