GDP's California Zinfandels

41. Preston of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley Old Vines/Old Clones (2011)

« Prev Next » 41 of 77
Spicy on the nose, with hints of black pepper, cured sausage and licorice over black fruits. This is tart on entry with lovely fresh blackberry fruit accented with tar and strawberry fruit. The tannins are soft and this gains complex notes of vanilla, tobacco and late-to-pop brambly fruit. A nice old school style of Zin, and one that looks likely to improve over the mid-term. 89 points

They only produce 4 varietal of Reds, Merlot, Syrah, Cab, and Zin, and they don't sell anything less that 9 years old. Currently working on their 2003 vintage. They are located at 5185 Union Road, across the street from Pear Valley. The owner is from Italy, and makes his own pasta and sauce, sausage, and salami, which he serves in his restaurant, which is on site. His fresh pizza's are to die for. If you haven't been there you need to try it, his wines are soooo smooth.
