The 2015 Famighetti Zinfandel comes from one of our favorite spots in all of Dry Creek Valley: Mark Farmer’s vineyard! Mark, Sheila, and their vineyard dog Elsa farm an incredibly steep, terraced bowl of zinfandel almost 1,000 feet above the valley floor. A true field blend of zin, there are even a few petit sirah vines planted along with the zinfandel that gives a dark richness and intensity to the wine. Barrel aged 18 months in a mix of new and used oak, the wine has a dark ruby color and jammy aromas of cinnamon and allspice. Ripe raspberries and blueberries fill the palate along with rich vanilla, all framed by silky tannins. The finish lingers, adding emphasis to dark berries and shades of dark chocolate.
