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

This has a sweet, brambly/herbal nose that shows its alcohol a bit too much. The heat accentuates a minty, chalky character but there are nice notes of lingonberry jam. Sweet on entry with pure raspberry fruit that is backed up with grace notes of tree bark, orange peel, and backing spices. The texture is a bit thick and slick with integrated acidity and soft, ripe tannins. Clean and brisk on the finish with a core of woodsiness and raspberry jam that leads to a final touch of spicy heat. Simple but big. 85pts

Great buy from Trader Joe's at only $8.99. Really classic Zin taste. I normally like a Zin at 15% but this 13.8% is great!

[Edited, thought this was the blend; I've had the straight Zin now too]. A tart Zinfandel which is to my liking, but not as exciting as the blend with Grenache, Mourvedre, and Syrah. Good buy though.

I'm lukewarm on this one. I agree with the tartness comment posted on one of the other reviews. I also thought it was thin.

While not a full bodied zinn I liked the dark cherry flavor a little peppery tasting a good pair for pasta

Supple, with a grapey tone to the cherry and berry character. An elegant, understated style with appealing flavors and mild, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2002.

This producer consistently turns out attractive, richly fruity, elegant Zinfandels. The medium-bodied 1997 offers abundant berry fruit intertwined floral notes, spice, and well-integrated wood. Tasty, with sweet fruit, medium weight, and a clean, vibrant finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 3-4 years.

A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2006 Quivira Vineyards Zinfandel 750ml

A seductive wine that features bright blueberry, cherry and plum aromas and flavors with a hint of spice and toasty oak. Great with grilled lamb.

Made from benchland grapes, this Claret-styled Zin shows depth of flavors, and a rich intensity suited for lamb or grilled steak dinners.
