Quivira Zinfandel Dry Creek 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This shows a bit of barrel stink on the nose, adding a touch of funk to the oyster shell and red-fruited nose. With nice fruit up front supported by light tannins, the mid-palate offers a lovely rush of raspberry followed by subtle oak notes and a nice bramble element. This is lively and fresh, with a lovely texture and fine balance. 88 points

Quivira is committed to making the finest wines that showcase the unique terrior of Dry Creek Valley. Quivira specializes in small-lot wines from varietals specifically matched to the soils, seasonal strength of sun, and coastal influenced nights that accentuate the unique characteristics that flow from the vine directly to the wine. The quality of our wines is an honest reflection of our commitment to this land, Biodynamic agriculture and our dedication to artisan winemaking. Quivira has been a Demeter-certified Biodynamic and organic winery since 2005 and is guided by a deeply-held principle of careful stewardship of the land and all its creatures. Environmentally conscious winegrowing and winemaking is a way of life at Quivira and the difference can be seen at the estate and tasted in the wines. The Quivira estate comprises four distinct vineyards within the Dry Creek Valley appellation in Sonoma County with a total of 93 acres of vines. In addition to Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc, Quivira grows several Rhone varieties such as Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Winemaker Hugh Chappelle works closely with Quivira's vineyard crew to capture the truest expression of each varietal from Quivira's vineyards. Tasting Room Hours Open daily 11:00am to 5:00pm, except major holidays. Read less
