Federalist Red Wine, Dueling Pistols, Dry Creek Valley, 2012
50% zinfandel. 50% syrah. Off the Hudson shore at Weehawken, the Federalist Alexander Hamilton was shot in a dual by Aaron Burr. On July 11, 1804 off the Hudson shore at Weehawken, the original Federalist, Alexander Hamilton was shot in duel by Aaron Burr and died from his injuries. Since dueling is no longer socially acceptable, we suggest solving differences over a glass of this dual of zinfandel and syrah. This wine exhibits bright cherry ham aromas, with big fruit flavors enhanced by hints of spice and lively acidity. Federalistwines.com. 14.5% alc./vol.
