Tasting Notes: Cherry, Black Raspberry, Cocoa, Vanilla
Michael and Anne Dashe founded Dashe Cellars in 1996, focusing on crafting exceptional single-vineyard wines, particularly Zinfandel. The two winemakers have a combined 40-plus years of experience at such noted wineries as Château Lafite-Rothschild, Château La Dominique, Ridge Vineyards, Cloudy Bay, Far Niente, Chappellet, and Schramsberg Wine Cellars.
This late harvest dessert wine remains fresh considering the abundance of sweetness and fruit concentration. The spiciness of the Zinfandel really comes through and persists through the finish. Chocolate desserts, especially with red fruits incorporated, pair well, as do blue cheeses.
