The Federalist Dueling Pistols, from Dry Creek Valley, exhibits bright cherry jam aromas, with big fruit flavours enhanced by hints of spice and lively acidity. Raise a glass to friendship and the freedoms we enjoy everyday! This is balanced, bold, and spicy. This wine features aromas of black cherry, blackberry, pepper, and spices.

On July 11, 1804 off the Hudson shore at Weehawken, the original Federalist, Alexander Hamilton was shot in a duel by Aaron Burr and died from his injuries. Since dueling is no longer socially acceptable, we suggest solving problems over a glass of this “dual” of Zinfandel and Syrah. Our vineyards are just off the Russian River shore, where the weather displays a dichotomy between morning, afternoon and evening similar to that of Hamilton and Burr. The result is a mature wine with bright cherry jam aromas and big fruit flavours enhanced by hints of spice and lively acidity.

Each varietal is fermented separately from free run juice. The individual lots spend an average of 15 days on the skins. Upon completing primary fermentation, the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation.

Aged for 15 months in 20% new American and Hungarian oak barrels. American adds sweeter notes while the Hungarian provide spiciness.

Try with chocolate, hamburgers, roast pork, or steak.
