Quivira Black Boar Zinfandel 2018
The violaceous color of this wine is like a regal kings robe. Quivira loves the bouquet of cinnamon stick, cardamom, and green fig that immediately entices. The uniqueness of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel stands out with the mix of red fruit textures – fresh, jammy, and dried. You may notice hints of raspberry, black olives, blackberry, crushed rose petals, and zaatar in this signature Zinfandel. There’s a seamless integration of Tahitian vanilla in the background from a carefully selected mix of American and French oak. This wine has all the strength and power of a robust Zinfandel but wrapped with the gentle touch of Mother Nature and astute winemaking. Excellent with lamb or chicken shawarma, roasted carrots, grilled meats with rosemary and smoked eggplant atop olive oil crostinis. Blend: 78% Zinfandel, 22% Petite Sirah Soft, citrusy and high-toned in cranberry and currant, this wine has 22% Petite Sirah and plenty of weight and ripeness. The oak is prominent and specked in baking spice and white pepper, with lingering hints of dried herb and lavender.
