Dashe was recommended to me while tasting around Healdsburg, CA and it did not disappoint. Dry Creek Valley is arguably the best place for Red Zinfandels in the entire US. This wine is intense but not overpowering and for someone who loves this type of wine, it is one of the best I have ever tasted (and may ever taste). I've had two separate vintages of this wine and both were equal and above nearly everything else. It's not expensive to buy (~$25) which is very nice because this is a rare find in that you get such an amazing wine for an affordable price. Highly, HIGHLY recommended.
External Reviews for Dashe Cellars Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
With a little Petite Sirah and Carignane blended in for depth and complexity, this is a nice Zinfandel for everyday drinking. It’s dry and full-bodied, and while the tannins are strong, they're perfect for busting up rich barbecue. Shows all the fruity spiciness you expect from a lusty Zin.
The 2009 Zinfandel is a very pretty, mid-weight wine laced with sweet red berries, flowers, licorice and leather. This is a decidedly feminine, gracious style, but it works very nicely. The 2009 is a very pleasing wine best enjoyed over the next 2–3 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2017.
The opaque purple-colored 1999 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Ranch boasts a superb bouquet of pure, jammy black raspberries, cherries, minerals, and subtle notions of earth and wood. Full-bodied, powerful, big, and thick, this dense, blockbuster Zinfandel can be drunk now and over the next 7-8 years. Bravo!
Dark, ripe and juicy, with plush blackberry, black cherry, anise, earth and mineral flavors that turn smooth and sophisticated.
The 2001 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Ranch exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color as well as peppery black cherry and berry fruit, excellent density, purity, full-bodied opulence, and considerable persistence. It carries its 15% alcohol gracefully.
Made in a totally different style, the 2005 Zinfandel Todd Brothers Vineyard is a deep ruby/purple-tinged offering displaying more chocolatey black fruits, tremendous intensity (it's one of the most concentrated Zinfandels of the vintage), and outstanding balance, richness, and length. Full-bodied with stunning purity and texture, it is a genuine revelation in this vintage. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Rustic and ripe, with dried cherry and licorice aromas and hardy plum, blueberry, roasted sage and cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2012.
Color: Black-purple, with reddish hues. Aroma: Black raspberry, black cherry, cassis, mineral, chocolate, black pepper, anise. Taste: Black cherry, black raspberry, chocolate, licorice, clove spice, good acidity, wonderful viscous velvety texture on the mid-palate, complex, long sweet finish of black cherry fruit, and peppery spice.
