The Dalton Vineyard is a beloved and prized source for winemaker Scott Klann. A cellar-worthy Zin with a floral nose of violets and earthy, blue fruit that segues slowly into structured tannins, bleedingly ripe plum notes and a spicy, almost leathery finish. The enological equivalent of Kurt Cobain acoustic in a thrift-store sweater, its raw power just waiting for a chance to surge.
