Zinfandel, Dancing Crow, Lake County, USA 2018
Regular price £21.20
Example of ‘cool-climate’ California – British winemaker – excellent value for money
Owned by Londoner Tony Cartlidge and his wife Sarah, Dancing Crow is an exciting addition to our growing American portfolio. Tony has worked in the Napa Valley since the late 1970s and his latest project sees a return to a more focussed production than his previous projects, as he and his team fashion only a handful of key cuvées.
This wine comprises 75% Zinfandel alongside a field blend of varieties including Alicante Bouschet, Cinsault and Touriga Nacional.
It is incredibly open for a Zinfandel of this age, combining complex tannic structure with dark fruit and blueberries on the palate. The finish is packed with savoury notes, including coffee, clove, cinnamon and anise.
