The 2017 Zinfandel, Lencioni Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley is dry farmed with a ton of blackberry fruit all over this wine, which is typical considering the location and the wild blackberries that grow everywhere. 2017 was a hot year, but the fruit came off in the first couple days of September, resulting in a lot of ripe black fruit.
