Quivira Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2009
Aromas center on brambly fresh blackberry and deep, dark boysenberry. There is an uncommon brightness and vibrancy to the fruit flavors here: dark-fleshed plum and blackberry expand on a plump, round mid-palate accented by just a pinch of black pepper. Full-bodied and bold, the clean, lingering finish exemplifies the quality of the vintage. Enjoyable upon release, this Zinfandel will age nicely through 2016.
Editorial Reviews for Quivira Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
Smells slightly autumnal at first, with earthy, leafy notes that serve as a base for growing aromas of minty herb, strawberry, cherry and some old wood notes. Really bright on entry, this is fresh and transparent with an earth-framed core of blackberry and black cherry fruit that shows fine tree bark and mineral accents. This turns a bit creamy going towards the back end and picks up a modestly more obvious oak impression, adding some sweetness and spice to the long, surprisingly elegant finish. Very fresh and crisp, downright refreshing, in fact. 91pts
Extremely fruity and smooth.
heavier almost meaty flavor. a little vegetal and a little acidic.
Looking for local bottle.
Great fruit notes.
