" Mouthfilling with a good entrance and midpalate. Good density, supple tannins, bright acidity and a long, smooth finish.
Our Dry Creek Federalist Zinfandel is hand-crafted to bring out the true individuality of the Zinfandel grape. The Dry Creek Valley has unique characteristics that make it especially well-suited for cultivation of this hearty, decidedly American grape. The valley receives pronounced afternoon heat, but our vines are also cooled by the night air that creeps up the Russian River Valley from the waters of the Pacific Ocean, producing evening and early morning fog. Our vineyard enjoys the luxury of extended “hang time,” which produces more mature fruit, and results in rich, full-bodied flavor characteristics. The Federalist Zinfandel has robust fruit with bright berry fruit character, and its lively acidity allows it to partner well with a wide variety of foods. " ~ Winery notes

To honor our Founding Fathers and their love of wine, we created a collection of varietals as big and bold as the men themselves. Thus, The Federalist was born. We began with our flagship Visionary Zinfandel featuring the man who pioneered The Federalist Party, Alexander Hamilton. We then expanded with our Dueling Pistols Red Blend, our Sonoma Chardonnay, and two wines from the historic Lodi region featuring George Washington (Zinfandel) and Ben Franklin (Cabernet Sauvignon).
We invite you to explore our collection of exceptionally bold wines and discover what it means to taste A Wine With Principle.
