Old, meet New
With springtime upon us, we can’t help but heartily recommend today’s Horse & Plow 2010 Grist Vineyard Zinfandel!
We’ve shown Zins from the Grist vineyard, in the past, and they have always sold out. This wonderful vineyard has supplied Zinfandel grapes to Turley, Bradford Mountain and Orin Swift (for The Prisoner).
Please don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to sample this Dry Creek Valley delight, from one of our very favorite vineyard sources.
Lively, fruit-driven, juicy and delicious, this is a classic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel that is perfect for your upcoming Spring and Summer BBQs.
Pair this very flexible wine with Boston Baked beans, chicken yakitori skewers or a teriyaki pineapple portabello mushroom burger.
Lovely and dark with a beet root colored core and ruby edges that catch the light when swirled. Thick, ropey legs move swiftly down the glass when the wine settles from swirling.
Luscious and full on the nose with black cherry and blackberry layered over dried plum, violet black tea, soft spice, dried fall leaves and a hint of maple and brown sugar.
Balanced and bold, lead by dark fruits of blackberry, black cherry, stewed blood orange compote and followed by soft baking spice, dried cranberry, hard leather and dried leaves.
Long lingering with pronounced black cherry. Finely integrated tannins and a bright acidity work together to drive flavors to the far corners of the palate.
