Healdsburg Half Marathon Zinfandel

COMMEMORATIVE RACE WINE

Handcrafted by Meadowcroft Wines, this wine celebrates the Healdsburg HallowineRun Half Marathon,  a scenic 13.1 mile through beautiful autumn-colored vineyards.  This limited production zinfandel comes from the Louvau Vineyard in the Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County which overlooks the half marathon course.  

TASTING NOTE:  Dark berry flavors of cherry, plum and blackberry, coupled with Asian spice, and dark chocolate notes, round out the palate of this wine.  The firm tannins linger easily with the fruit and chocolate notes.

FOOD PAIRING:  This balanced zinfandel will pair well with a variety of dishes such as Indian-spiced short ribs, meatball & provolone subs, dry rubbed tacos with tomatillo avocado slaw, or spicy baby back ribs. This wine is also excellent on its own.

"Supple and juicy, balanced and refined—this is Zinfandel’s elegant side. The foreground is equal measures of brambly dark fruit and concentrated red fruit, with an enduring overlay of rose perfume. Eastern and barbecue spices linger on the finish with black licorice, molasses and cocoa," Adam Edmonsond. (2014 vintage)

"This Zinfandel shows a wide, layered multiplicity of aromas and flavors. The body is typically full but not a jammy Zinfandel body. Characteristic of Dry Creek, its balance is noteworthy, and that allows delicate flavors on the palate to keep in step with a complex nose," Jörn Kleinhans, CSW. (2014 vintage)
