Dueling Pistols Dry Creek Valley 2016 is full bodied and powerful. It boasts jammy fruit flavours of Blackberry, Black Cherry, Plum and Strawberry. Its contact with oak gives the wine strong notes of vanilla, cedar, chocolate, tobacco and nutmeg.
The Dueling Pistols come from California and each of the wines intertwine two competing varietals in a 50/50 blend where each varietal’s fight for power balances that of the other. With both wines, each component is fermented separately, then combined together in French oak barrels to age. The depth and character of the wine inspired a compelling label, which resulted in a story, satisfying both palate and curiosity. Engage in the experience and discover yourself how the story unfolds. See you at dawn.
“One man raised a pistol for country. One for love. of the seven witnesses, three of them hoped neither man would survive, two of them needed both men to live, and one was no man at all. The town physician stood ready, but willing to save neither shooter. the town drunk wandered over with a secret to tell. The town Sheriff was there as well, standing right in the middle, but even he wasn’t about to get between these dueling pistols.”
