The Federalist

The roots of Zinfandel began to take hold in the U.S. as the nation was gaining independence. The Federalist pays homage to the founding fathers, specifically Alexander Hamilton, for all they did to create the United States of America. The Dry Creek Valley estate-grown Federalist Zinfandel is an ode to the noble grape and a celebration of its American origin. The robust fruit, bright berry character and lively acidity speak to the distinct characteristics of these bold, strong vines.
