Including the Zins of Dry Creek Valley

 


« Prev Next » 5 of 16
2009 Wine Guerrilla Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Adel’s Vineyard 14.7% $30

Lovely perfumed nose of brambly black raspberry fruit gently accented with vanilla, spice and soil notes. With air, notes of pencil shavings and crushed wildflowers add detail. Relatively light-bodied in the mouth and very freshly flavored with juicy, crisp notes of crushed black raspberry with hint of cherry and blueberry. The wine is brilliantly transparent in the mouth and wonderfully open. On the backend this gains a nice soil tone and reveals good aromatics on the spicy, briary finish. A fruit-driven wine in the best sense of the word. 92pts

    We loved the Wilson Zins when we went tasting in November, but our favorites on that trip were all from Amador/Shenandoah- Wilderotter, Bonjon, Runquist and Convergence. These may not make to the ZAP festival, but anyone going anywhere close should take the time to explore this area.
