2014 Zinfandel, Lencioni, Dry Creek Valley

2014 Zinfandel, Lencioni, Dry Creek Valley

A lean and terroir driven Zin. You can taste the vineyard in this one!

Opens with pleasant pepper and anise on the nose and bright red fruits on the palate. Medium body with grippy tannins and an old-world style. A bright acidity makes it a natural with any rich Italian foods like mushroom stuffed raviolis in cream sauce.

Production Notes
