2018 Zinfandel, Speedy Creek Vineyard
Nestled in the mountains above Knights Valley, Speedy Creek Vineyard produces amazing zinfandel. Warm sunny days and mild summer nights provide the ideal climate to allow the grapes to reach their maximum degree of ripeness.
On the nose, candied blueberries and nutmeg are framed by clarified butter and shortbread. On the palate, ripe blackberries are followed by secondary flavors of wild mint, fennel, chicory, and tangy dried cherry with a hint of black pepper on the back palate Best now through 2027.
The cheerful acidity and layered complexities of this special Zin are perfect for pairing with bold-flavored dishes like Korean short ribs, brisket, or grilled vegetables.
