The Federalist Dueling Pistols Red
Description: Winemaker's Notes
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 any differences over a glass of this dual of Zinfandel and Syrah. The Federalist Dueling Pistols, from Dry Creek Valley, exhibits bright cherry jam aromas, with big fruit flavors enhanced by hints of spice and lively acidity.

Critical Acclaim
SH 88pts
Made with Zinfandel and Syrah, in equal amounts, this wine shows how compatible the two varieties are in a blend. The wine is full-bodied and dry, with oak-inspired flavors of red and black currants, black pepper and bacon. Decant it for an hour or two before drinking.
