User Reviews for Dry Creek Vineyard Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley

Winemaker's Notes:

The 200 acres of estate owned vineyards are the foundation for the winery. Fundamentally, the family understands that great wines begin in the vineyard. This philosophy is an ideal marriage for winemaker Bill Knuttel, as he spends most of his time in the vineyard. Each harvest Bill can be found walking vineyards, row by row, to ensure that the grapes are ripening perfectly. Bill’s meticulous approach to vineyard management allows him to use the highest quality grapes for our wines. After all, a wine can only be as good as the fruit in the vineyard. If the fruit is bad there’s a pretty good chance the wine won’t be very good either. Utilizing careful viticultural practices and maintaining long term relationships with growers all contribute to producing these world-class wines. Old Vine Zinfandel carries special meaning at the Dry Creek family winery. The term, originally coined by founder David Stare, refers special “old vine” vineyards located in and around the Dry Creek Valley. With vines averaging more than 80 years in age, the 2006 vintage displays incredible aromas of black stone fruit that ooze lushness and richness. On the palate the wine is dense and concentrated with classic briary and raspberry flavors along with the wine’s signature cardamom spice complexity. The finish incorporates smoky vanilla notes from the French oak, leading to a long and satisfying aftertaste. A blockbuster Zin!
