Cortina 2017

a Zinfandel from Sonoma CountyCA
$40 per bottle

The core of this blend comes from Chen's Vineyard, planted in 1972, in addition to other quality Dry Creek Valley vineyards. This wine is named after the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down this AVA. The flavor profile tends toward red fruit with balanced acidity and soft tannins - a uniquely elegant expression of Zinfandel. Tasting Notes Always one of our most elegant and polished expressions of Zinfandel, Cortina has a bold flavor profile while being balanced and lithe on the palate. Notes of boysenberry, mulberry, cedar and clove complement the wine’s finely integrated tannins. Food Pairing Notes A perfect partner to this wine would be a rack or leg of lamb. The richness of the wine and the combination of berry and spice notes would meld perfectly with the lamb’s rich and slightly gamey flavor.
