Dueling Pistols Dry Creek Valley Red Blend 2016

Red Blend | Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County,  California
Dueling Pistols wines intertwine two competing varietals in a 50/50 blend where each varietal’s fight for power balances that of the other, like the compelling characters that tell the Dueling Pistols story. Our Dry Creek Valley Red Blend is composed of 50% Zinfandel and 50% Syrah. The juicy entrance leads to nice mid-weight density and mouth filling texture. The finish is long, balanced, and satiating.

Wine Facts

BOTTLE SIZE

750 ml

15%

AGING

Aged 18 months in French Oak, 30% new. The long ageing allows the two competing varietals to marry well and balance out one another, develop tannin, and build structure.

FERMENTATION

As the Zinfandel and Syrah grapes are brought in, each block is fermented separately. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is blended before being put in barrel to marry together and age.
