Preston of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Estate Bottled 1981

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Vegetal on the nose with rich beetroot aromas that are a touch musty. This shows a little sweetness with mint and sassafras accents. Round on entry then turning lean on the palate with some faint cherry fruit, a bit of old wood, and a hint of green anise seed. There’s still some tannin here, with some coffee overtones on the palate that shows fading richness but this is barely drinkable. 69pts
