Aromas & Flavors
Made from our estate Zinfandel, Baci is a delicious explosion of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa, cassis, blackberry, black cherry, plum and boysenberry aromas. Fruit flavors of sweet marionberry and blackberry jam, are followed by a rich midpalate and a lingering dark chocolate ganache finish.
Baci is sinfully delicious paired with rich, decadent chocolate desserts, as well as vanilla bean ice cream or bread pudding with plum or persimmons. Dark fruit-based tarts or pies and pecan pie also pair nicely.
How It's Made
The grapes for Baci are left on the vine longer in order to achieve a “late harvest” style, shriveling the ultra-ripe berries up to 32 brix. Upon entering the winery, the hand-harvested grapes are sorted and destemmed before being transferred to a stainless steel tank for three days of cold soaking. Yeast was then added and pump overs commenced, one to two times daily, for the duration of primary fermentation. Once fermentation is finished, the wine is drained and pressed to barrels for malolactic fermentation and 6 months of barrel aging. Chocolate flavoring was added prior to bottling.
Century old clones of Zinfandel from our Dry Creek Valley estate yield grapes of exceptional aroma, flavor and structure — the ideal choice for Baci.
