Hoskins Ranch
Dry Creek Valley
15% Alcohol By Volume

Originally made under the Lucas J. Cellars label, this blend embraces the spirit of the field blends that anchored early winemaking in Dry Creek Valley.  Equal parts Zinfandel, Grenache, Carignane, and Petite Sirah, the strengths of each combine to make an incredibly well-rounded wine that has enough structure and acidity to age for at least a decade, if you can keep yourself from drinking it immediately.  Blackberry fruit and spice on the nose folds into a clasic Dry Creek mid-palate of bramble and earth.  Great on its own, it will also pair very well with most things cooked low and slow.
