Quivira 2017 Zinfandel "Black Boar" Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County
There’s an incredibly deep violet color that welcomes you to a seductive nose of dark berry, spice, and an attractive accent of toasty oak. The wine has a wide array of fruit textures – fresh, jammy, dried – that speaks to the uniqueness of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Pick up flavors of blackberry, mulberry, Bing cherry jam, za’atar, sage, and marjoram. Pairs nicely with bold flavors or grilled food. Try Mediterranean dishes, lamb or eggplant moussaka, Asiago, Pecorino, or even a flourless bittersweet chocolate torte if you’re feeling festive. Lush and big, this wine projects a sense of confidence. Silky tannins for drinking now will easily extend to the cellar for seven to ten years (2026-2029).
