2015 La Promessa Zinfandel
<< Back to Shop
The name of this wine -- and the vineyard from which it is sourced -- means “The Promise” in Italian. It was chosen for the promise I made to my father to continue our family’s long winemaking tradition in California. The vineyard is located next to our winery on a rocky, southwest-facing slope that is arguable in the warmest part of the Dry Creek Valley. Prunes, dried figs, allspice and cloves dominate on the nose with a lovely cherry compote element on the palate. This wine was made for BBQ.
