Alcohol/vol 15%
Dueling Pistols wines interwine two competing varietals in a 50/50 belnd where each varietal's fight for power balances that of the others. The Dry Creek Valley red blend is composed of equal amounts of Zinfandel and Syrah creating a harmonious, non-angular wine. Each wine is fermented separately, then combined together in French oak barrels to age. Deep garnet with violet highlights. Brooding aromas of dark fruits and black tea with an enticing hint of white pepper. A juicy entrance leads to nice midweight density and mouth filling texture which ends with a long, balanced, and satiating finish.

The 2016 Zinfandel / Syrah is a beauty. Offering up lots of sweet red and black fruits as well as notes of vanilla bean, sappy herbs, pepper, and a kiss of classic Syrah meatiness, it's medium-bodied, well made, and balanced on the palate. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.
