Dashe "Vineyard Select" Zinfandel 2018
Dashe Cellars is a family-owned artisan winery located in the heart of the Urban Wine Country in Oakland, CA. Founded by the husband and wife winemaking team of Michael and Anne Dashe, Dashe Cellars crafted its first vintage of Zinfandel in 1996. Since that time, the Dashe’s have focused on producing exceptional, single-vineyard wines using a traditional, non-industrial approach to winemaking. Dashe Cellars uses traditional and “natural” winemaking techniques, including small-lot fermentation, the use of indigenous yeasts, and little-to-no fining or filtration.
2018 Vineyard Select is the first year that the Dashes decided to blend Zinfandel from top select sites in different northern California appellations. Made primarily of Zinfandel, but also added exotic varietals such as Teroldego, Tannat, Mourvedre and Petite Sirah. Each varietal was fermented separately using native yeast on the skins. Then aged for a total of 14 months in older French Oak.
