Very pretty, and very Dry Creek Valley, with lovely, nice briary fruit that’s full of crushed raspberry and wild cherry nuances. A little plump and easy going, but varietally spot-on with fairly deep Zin berry fruit, good acidity that accents tart cherry flavors on the back end, and a little tannic bite on the modest finish. Also a bit four-square perhaps, but this checks all the boxes. 87 points

This value priced bottling has a low key nose that is very true to type with a fine blend of earth, cocoa, and mixed red and black raspberry fruit that has just a touch of smoky, toasty, vanilla scented oak influence. In the mouth this offers a restrained, easy drinking style with bright acidity and soft tannins. There is a lovely touch of funky earth right up front followed by fresh and friendly slightly spicy red berry fruit. This finishes with decent length with a touch of tar and spice and while I would like to see a bit more intensity both on the nose and the palate this is recognizable, typical Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. 86pts

Nice garnet color. Alcohol comes through a bit too much on the nose but mellows out with a little time (let it breathe for about 15 minutes). Some black licorice and spice on the nose. Notes of black cherry and cassis on the palate and a nice peppery finish. It seems to lack that "kick" that the flavors indicate that it should have (I'm talking mouthfeel and flavor profile, not alcohol content). All in all not bad, but not particularly great either. This is something I might crack open when I'm grilling (to drink when I'm actually cooking). Decent stuff. Three glass rating.

standard textbook zin. the finish is a little astringent for my tastes, but the upfront flavors are nice.

Just arrived about two hours into it. Big on cherries. A little spice. Fair finish.

Dark berries, cherries, and some spice in the nostrils. Moderate tannins, good spice. Not a bad one.

Lots of dark berries. Good spice on the nose as well... Nice tannins. Spice comes through big time in the mouth. Good vino here!

Wine Tasting NotesExtremely fragrant nose... nice raspberry and plum aromas combine with a subtle pepperiness. This is a concentrated Zin that offers a full mouthfeel of fruit, spice and even hints of chocolate! The finish is long and packed with flavor.
