2012 Late Harvest Zinfandel
It has been three years since we last made a luscious, unctuous, intense Late Harvest Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley, and this year’s wine is a great example of how good a Late Harvest Zinfandel can be.
2012 Zinfandel Bedrock Vineyard
Only 52 cases of this zinfandel were made from the Bedrock Vineyard, from vines planted in 1888. Bursting with flavor and layers of complexity, this is rapidly becoming one of our favorite zinfandels in the Dashe Cellars lineup. It starts out deceptively soft and fruit-forward, and then the flavors just keep building and building to a crescendo.
2012 Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
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.
2012 Zinfandel Les Enfants Terribles, Heart Arrow Ranch
This is a young vineyard, and it’s clear that the fruit is getting better and better each year it matures. In 2012, the ripening conditions were picture-perfect, and we ended up with one of the most fruit-forward and luscious wines we’ve produced from these vines.
2012 Zinfandel Lily Hill Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley
This is the first year we've released a vineyard-select zinfandel from one of the best vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley, at Bella Vineyards. It is an absolutely stunning palate of flavors: black cherry, blackberry, violets, lavender, clove, black pepper, earth-the list goes on and on. Great texture, great structure. This wine will live on and on. Only 45 cases made.
2011 'The Comet' Alexander Valley
Since the early 1800’s, certain exceptional wines made in a year of a comet are called “Comet Wines.” Dashe Cellars has built on this tradition by creating a limited-edition wine to commemorate the Comet ISON, which will graze the sun in November 2013. This is an extraordinary new wine, made in collaboration between Dashe Cellars Winery and Chabot Space & Science Center. 10% of proceeds to benefit Chabot Space & Science Center.
