(2013 Vintage) Big and bold, intrepid - words often used to characterize the black boar. It's the reason we named Quivira's newest Zinfandel for this fearless beast. Our vision in crafting Black Boar was to explore the reaches of the Dry Creek Valley - home to both the wild boar and to what many consider the finest terroir for Zin - in search of fruit that would provide incredible richness, concentration, yet also balance. For this debut vintage, we didn't need to search far. Zinfandel harvested from our estate Anderson Ranch and Petite Sirah from our home ranch were the principle building blocks, yielding a wine exhibiting characteristics that make the name so apropos.
Blend: 83% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignan
