Planted in 1882, Beeson Ranch is one of Dry Creek Valley’s oldest and most prized vineyards. The old gnarled vines, first planted by Italian immigrants, provide us with some of our most intriguing Zinfandel grapes. The initial aromatics of the wine are refined and elegant with underlying espresso and white pepper elements. After several minutes of airing, more dramatic aromas of bay leaf, graphite and blackberry characters come through. The palate is supple and rich with silky tannins that mingle with dark cherry, blackberry and dark chocolate. The finish is long and pure with a mouthwatering finish.
