Lot 254 | 2020 Dry Creek Zinfandel 750ml

This one is gonna go fast ladies and gents!

Today's offer is sourced from a Zinfandel master with access to top-notch fruit from one of Dry Creek's most legendary vineyards (rhymes with Snoopy and may or may not have been part of the prize winner at the 1976 Judgement of Paris).

This is a no-expense spared Zinfandel aged in 33% new French oak and built for a $50/bottle price point. Yours today for just $15/bottle!

Normally this is where I implore you to "back up the truck"; unfortunately, we have so little of this, you could fit it all in one truck.

Inky, almost opaque in the glass. Brambly blackberry and black cherry fruit are haloed with chocolate truffle and toasty toffee oak notes but there is a cool-climate sophistication and elegance to this bouquet...everything is nicely delineated and never overripe. Clearly a deft-hand at work here. This sensibility extends to the exceptionally-balanced palate where ripe raspberry and black fruit conspire with a good mix of mineral and oak-influenced cocoa and dark chocolate wood notes in an lengthy finish with good grip and persistence.

You know what to do...
