Today we have another special deal from our friends at invino! This time they’ve chosen a delicious Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. I’ve been following their limited time offers for awhile now and have been seriously impressed with the variety, the quality and perhaps most importantly, the prices. Plus use the link included below and new sign-ups will get a $10 credit to use on their first order. Cheers to that! And now from invino…
Dry Creek Valley is to Zinfandel what Napa is to Cabernet Sauvignon: a natural home for the grape to show off its richest, ripest self. Called “Zin’s sweet spot” and “the key to its future” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Dry Creek has the highest concentration of premium Zin producers in California—and a signature spicy character of cinnamon and freshly ground pepper that make it impossible to ignore.
From these storied soils comes the 2011 Big Vine Zinfandel, a special winery debut that has already won gold at the 2013 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Generous and youthful with a lot of promise for the cellar, it’s loaded with crushed blackberries and other vibrant, jammy flavors, fanning out across a palate supported by cocoa beans, roasted coffee, pepper, earth, and a subtle framework of oak.
Soft tannins and floral aromatics—not to mention the $18 price—make this Zinfandel very approachable, while the rich, dark fruit begs for your best barbecue efforts. Zesty sausage, spice-rubbed beef, and even meat lover’s pizza (on days when you don’t feel like firing up the grill)? This wine is so game.
