Shows a dramatic interpretation of Dry Creek terroir, with intense wild berry, mocha and spice flavors that are so ripe, they veer into currants and grilled blackberries. Entirely dry, the wine is marked by rich, complex tannins. Superb, a great wine, as good as Zinfandel gets. Drink now through 2012.
An impressive Zinfandel, notable for its complexity and charm. Exudes quintessential Zin character, with a mouthburst of red currants, black raspberry pie filling, wild cherries, sweet charred oak and masses of freshly crushed black pepper. There’s even a chocolaty richness in the finish. Production of 921 cases is decent in the old-vine Zin category.
If you had to choose one Zinfandel to showcase Dry Creek Valley, it’s this one. The vines are said to be over 100 years of age. Just superb.

Yet it’s dry, and the structure is entirely elegant. The two vineyards that are source to this wine are old and dry-farmed. A very great Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, a…

With a splash of Petite Sirah, this Zin is dark and exceedingly powerful in blackberry and cherry fruit, complexed with notes of dark chocolate, licorice, Chinese five-spice and white pepper. A dramatic wine that calls for dramatic food.
