Editorial Reviews for Frei Brothers Dry Creek Reserve Zinfandel
Spicy blackberry and bramble greet the nose along with gentle oak notes of toasted nuts, dried ginger and a bit of nutmeg. Round, soft and transparent in the mouth, this has great Zin character with red cherry and wild raspberry flavors bursting in the mouth. It’s medium-bodied and middle of the road in style, so it’s not going to make many go wow, but it is a classic Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel with great flavors and balance. This really does have some great aromatics, though the finish is a bit on the short side. Still, this is an easy to drink, easy to like Zinfandel. 87pts
External Reviews for Frei Brothers Dry Creek Reserve Zinfandel
Impressive structure and rich flavors of blackberry, cherry and spices.
There are lots of lusty flavors of briary wild berries, currants, sweet cured tobacco and peppery spices in this dry Zinfandel. It has smooth tannins and brisk acidity; by itself, it’s rustic, but richly sauced meats should help tame it.
The outstanding 2010 Zinfandel, a blend of 97.5% Zinfandel and 2.5% Petite Sirah (one of Gallo’s favorite blending varietals), hit nearly 15% alcohol. Its dense purple color is accompanied by meaty boysenberry, black cherry and black currant fruit intertwined with notions of pepper and underbrush. Full-bodied with admirable texture as well as fruit, it should drink nicely for 3–4 years.
