2009 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel
California: Sonoma County: Dry Creek Valley
The Miro Touch
Today’s VC Cellars 2009 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel was crafted by our good friend - and incredibly talented winemaker - Miro Tcholakov.
Today’s wine is a beautifully elegant Zin, with a lovely balance between juicy fruit flavors and subtle structure and tannin. This wine won a Gold Medal at the Sonoma County Harvest Fair, and it’s easy to see why.
We paired this classy wine with an equally classy dish of Morroccan chicken, prepared in a tagine with green olives and Meyer lemon. Cheers!
A very deep and robust dark cherry red, reminiscent of a fully ripened black cherry.
A Zin lover’s dream on the nose, with deep notes of juicy red fruit, earth, and spice. Red raspberry and mulberry mingle with notes of sweet tobacco leaf, dry summer briar patch, toasty dark baking spices, and a slight kick of black peppercorn.
Very similar to the nose, with added flavors of blackberry, violet, European cherry licorice, sandalwood, and dried black cherry.
A very elegant and refined Zinfandel, with just enough structure and tannin to provide a perfect balance to the juicy fruit flavors.
Moroccan Chicken, prepared with green olives and Meyer lemon.
