Red in the glass--not as dark as a lot of Zins. Lots of wood on the nose. Lots of blackberry fruit on the tip of the tongue. Pretty easy to drink. Spreads smoothly across the palate but does not seem to have multi-dimensions. Slight tannin pucker, but I can't believe that anyone would be put off by it. US$18.99 at Costco
Really nice oaky and blueberry aroma, with a finely rounded body that packs good fruit flavor and nice wood touches.
Not only Old Vines, but old style Zin. Big and Burly.
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Dry Creek Vineyard Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
Wine Tasting NotesThe Old Vine Zinfandel is the best blend from our finest Sonoma sites. This vintage gives us aromas of blackberry and raspberry mixed with a hint of clove and spice. Balanced and elegant, a wonderful harmony of dark fruit coats the palate with flavors of dark berry, ripe cherry and plum. The jammy berry flavors expand across the palate with a hint of earthiness and spice and a long, distinctive finish.
