2016 Dueling Pistols Zinfandel Syrah. Dry Creek Valley

Dueling Pistols


Deep garnet with violet highlights, the nose has brooding aromas of dark fruits and black tea with an enticing hint of white pepper. The juicy entrance leads to nice midweight density and mouth filling texture. The finish is long, balanced,  and satiating


Each varietal is fermented separately from free run juice. The individual lots spend an average of 15 days on the skins. Upon completing primary fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation. Aged for 15 months in 20% new American and Hungarian oak barrels. American adds sweeter notes while the Hungarian provide spiciness
