Elyse zinfandel morinsoli

Zinfandel, Dry Creek 2013

Elyse Winery

Our 2013 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is garnet red in color with pleasing aromas of baking spice, boysenberry, cherry, citrus, rosemary, chocolate and clove. It is full and rich on the palate with a smooth mouthfeel and flavors of red and black wild berries, mocha, maple and hints of savory herb and citrus zest. This wine is balanced and complex with succulent fruit and subtle dusty tannins on the long finish.

Reviews

  • "93 points. Sourced from the Teldeschi and Ramazzotti vineyards, with 12% Petite Sirah and 6% Carignane, this impressively bold, inky wine is undeniably pretty on the nose, recalling strawberries and cherries. Juicy, big and delicious, it has memorable structure and elegance that balances the ripeness of its fruit." (Wine Enthusiast)
  • "90 points. Briary blackberry and licorice aromas lead to tightly focused, ripe flavors of dried cherry and smoky cracked pepper. Finishes on a rustic note. Drink now through 2025. 1,176 cases made." (Wine Spectator)
