DASHE ZINFANDEL BLEND "ANCIENT VINES", BEDROCK VINEYARD, SONOMA VALLEY 2015
Composed of 30% Zinfandel, 35% Carignane and 35% Mourvèdre, the 2015 Ancient Vines offers a pale to medium ruby-purple color and notes of licorice, black soil and black pepper over a core of blackberry pie and prunes plus a touch of Chinese five spice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is very spicy with velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a lingering cinnamon stick note.
This is a blend of Carignan, Zinfandel and Mourvèdre, with the vines planted originally in 1888. Given time to age in mostly used French oak, it's weedy and herbal, thick and densely layered in fresh notions of blackberry and strawberry, with hints of leather and black pepper.
