Zinfandel planted in 1930 to 1985. Typically one of the higher acid wines in the portfolio. There is a eucalyptus tree in the vineyard that can contribute mintiness to the wine. 30% new wood. Perfumed on the nose with jammy blueberry tones, a touch of aromatic wood and hints of mint and crushed rocks. In the mouth this has a cool feel backed by rich, very pure fruit. The tannins give this a silky feel that is well balanced to the blueberry tinged, creamy raspberry fruit. Very nice length with hints of herb and mint on the finale. 92pts

This wine has a lovely ruby color in the glass, lighter around the edges and deeper toward the center. The nose is a lovely combination of leather, limestone, oak and just a hint of ripe berries. The taste is very fruit forward and characteristically jammy, but not is a super sweet grape jam sort of way. It has lovely fruit that doesn't make you think you just drank kool-aid, instead this wine seems to be showing a lot of respect to the ripe fruit. The fruit gives way to some wonderful minerality and spice midpalate, with hints of gravel and baking spice. In the end, the delicate tannins provide for a long, smooth, supple finish that makes you want to take your time with this wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 92 Bright medium red. Complex bouquet of fresh red berries, Asian spices, flowers and minerals. Nervy red berry flavors pack a solid punch, especially in light of the wine's pinot-like weight and texture. Repeats the sweet red fruit and floral notes on the long, focused finish. "A classic Dickerson," noted Joel Peterson, "with a low pH of about 3.3 and very good acidity."

Tasting Notes:

This is a strong year for Dickerson Vineyard. A bright medium red, it is bursting with bright, red raspberry scents, Asian spices, flowers, and minerals, topped with perfect levels of acidity. The long, focused finish has full, ripe tannins and hints of mint and chocolate. Classic Dickerson. – Joel Peterson
