THE FEDERALIST DRY CREEK ZINFANDEL 2016

Wine Region: California, USA

Grape: Zinfandel, Carignan

Tasting Notes

Dry Creek Federalist Zinfandel is hand-crafted to bring out the true individuality of the Zinfandel grape. The Federalist's vineyard in Southern edge of Dry Creek Valley enjoys the luxury of extended “hang time,” which produces more mature fruit, and results in rich, full-bodied flavor characteristics. The Federalist Zinfandel has robust fruit with bright berry fruit character, and its lively acidity allows it to partner well with a wide variety of foods.

Ratings

About the Winery

Through four generations, the Terlatos have brought the world’s finest wines to the American table as importers, marketers and vintners. Rather than focusing on a single grape or place, Tony Terlato and his family have assembled an all-star team of winemakers with the tools to create best-in-class wines from iconic appellations – to capture “magic in a glass,” as Tony says. These wines reflect the family’s highest values, and their vision of all that can be realized from soil, grape and commitment.
