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. A perfect partner to this wine would be a rack or leg of lamb.

Food Pairing Notes

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.

Vineyard Notes

Dry Creek Valley’s winemaking culture was established in the 1850s, coinciding with Zinfandel’s rise to prominence in the region. Named for the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down Dry Creek Valley, the Cortina grapes benefit from diurnal fluctuations, which preserve natural acidity and accentuate the wine’s red fruit characteristics.
