Teira 2006 Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley, Estate

The Teira 2006 Sonoma County Zinfandel was produced from vineyards within the Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley in northern California. Often coined the flagship varietal of Dry Creek Valley, Zinfandel thrives in this region and is known for producing big yet balanced, complex wines season after season. A Gold Medal Wine Club Special Selection, the Teira 2006 Zinfandel has been nominated in the ‘American Wine Awards’ for Food & Wine magazine and was reviewed by one of England’s leading wine critics and authors, Stephen Brook, who described the wine as having a “slightly jammy nose, with a hint of coffee. Medium-bodied and sleek…ample berry fruit and a long, fresh finish.” Ripe strawberry, black cherry, blueberry pie, vanilla spice, and a hint of espresso come alive on the nose and the palate follows with berry pie and a rich, ripe viscosity lending to a huge mouthfeel. Soft tannins and good structure overall lead into a long finish. The wine is well integrated without being overpowered by alcohol, exhibiting the Teira philosophy of balance and elegance in a wine.
