The inaugural Dry Creek Zinfandel from Integrity shows up-front notes of flint, pencil shavings, and plum skins. After some time, the wine evokes more floral and savory notes such as bee pollen and purple flowers and eucalyptus. The finish has prevalent tones of caramel, milk chocolate, cardamom, and clove. Texturally, grippy intensity upfront that evolves nicely to a soft, encompassing mouthfeel. The wine’s texture encourages a food pairing with protein, while the aromas might make you think a more delicate, herbal dish would be appropriate. Pair with pork shoulder, meaty pasta sauces or pizza, or BBQ, with a side of good company! Drink now – 2029.
