Zinfandel

2014 Zinfandel Les Enfants Terribles, McFadden Farm

 New Release!  ·  First vintage in 3 years
We have not been able to make a Zinfandel from McFadden Farm since the 2011 vintage, and we are very happy to release this one from the 2014 vintage. This vineyard produced the very first wines from the “Les Enfants Terribles” series of wines from Dashe Cellars, and we’re glad we can re-introduce it to our fans. more »

History This is one of our best old-vine vineyards from Dry Creek valley in Sonoma; the 91-year-old vines grow straight out the rocky soil on the “bench” of the east Dry Creek valley. They are classic old vines, with the gnarled trunks quite low to the ground, head-trained and dry-farmed, resulting in tiny yields of concentrated fruit. Production This is always one of the first... more »

The Dry Creek Valley is one of the best places in California for the production of complex, balanced zinfandels. The 2013 Dashe Cellars Dry Creek Zinfandel is an excellent example of a classic Dry Creek Valley zin: intense, mouthfilling yet very balanced. more »

History Each year the vines from the Florence vineyard in the north of Dry Creek Valley make an exceptionally vibrant and intense zinfandel. It’s a characteristic of the vineyard to have very aromatic and “zingy” fruit aromas and flavors. This vineyard is an example of a younger-vine vineyard that—through selection of the vineyard site, pruning for low yields, climate,... more »

This is one of the most lush and velvet-textured Todd Brothers Ranch Zinfandels in recent memory, which is no surprise given that 2012 was such an exceptional vintage. These stellar 50-year-old head-trained vines in Geyserville consistently pump out some of our best and most long-lived Zinfandel bottlings, and in a year like 2012, it was almost impossible to not make a lovely wine. more »

History This dessert wine is always made from grapes grown on the Lily Hill vineyard, owned by Bella Winery, in northern Dry Creek valley. The steep slopes and rocky soil makes the vines struggle to survive, which in turn help the vines create very concentrated, complex grapes.  One of the reasons that we love this vineyard is the wonderful acidity of the grapes.  Even when we wait an... more »

In a year with almost perfect ripening conditions, the 2012 zinfandel from the Dry Creek Valley is intense, mouthfilling, yet very balanced—a classic example of zinfandel from one of the best places in California to grow the varietal. more »

This is without a doubt one of the best wines that we’ve made from this young vineyard. We think that there are a number of reasons for this: the vines are more established than previous years; the 2010 vintage produced a smaller crop; the cool season led to more acidity that highlighted the fruit. But for whatever reason, this is an exceptionally vibrant and intense zinfandel. more »

This is the twelfth vintage that we’ve made wine from these great old vines grown in one of the best red-soil vineyards in Sonoma. These thick, gnarled vines planted on the steep red rock slope in Geyserville always produce jet-black, intensely-flavored and very complex grapes. Since the vintage of 2009 was simply a stunning year for growing grapes, the Todd Brothers Ranch Zinfandel we produced in this vintage is equally stunning. more »
