Dutcher Crossing Winery Zinfandel Bill's Block Maple 2008
Made from a 1-acre section of the famed Maple Vineyard, this is our biggest and jammiest Zin, made with grapes harvested from 80-year-old vines. A field-blend-style wine, it also includes Petite Sirah, Cinsault and Alacante Bouchet. Oh, and who's Bill? The original owner of the vineyard, and a mentor to growers Tom and Tina Maple.
We have tasted a broad range of Maple Zinfandels over the years. This wine gets the award for the smoothest. While the berry fruit is very evident early, it calms to a very smooth finish. Neither boisterous or mellow, it drinks well with grilled red meat dishes.
