This wine opens with tea and cranberry aromas layered with mocha and vanilla. The palate is lush, fruity and juicy with raspberry, crushed black pepper and balancing acidity. While the 2009 Zinfandel is absolutely enjoyable upon release, it will gain bottle bouquet and aromatics over the next three years. ~ Mark R.

Dark purple in color, this Zinfandel exudes aromas of jammy plum, dark raspberry, fresh tobacco leaf, sweet leather, and clove spice. The flavor profile is reminiscent of dark cherries, molasses, dried blueberries, and wild strawberry preserves finishing with notes of black tea, red currants, Asian spice, light caramel, and subtle Dry Creek earth. This wine is full of all the Zinfandel spice and notes that you expect from a quality Dry Creek Zinfandel. - Winery ** SDOLD OUT **

A decently made old-vine Lodi Zinfandel that's smooth and soft, with enough clove, cinnamon and brambly character to stand out and be paired with a range of smoked, grilled and marinated meats and other full-flavored food.

The core of this wine comes from 3 of the best AVAs for this American grape: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley. Palate is lush, fruity and juicy with raspberry, crushed pepper and balancing acidity. Aged in new and used Hungarian oak.

Appealing for its smoked pepper and black cherry aromas as well as modest plum and roasted anise flavors. Drink now through 2016.

What an easy-drinking Zin, and it has real complexity, too. The flavors are of rich, chocolaty cherry, raspberry and blackberry flavors, with Zinny spices, while firm tannins and good acidity provide a rich structural balance. This is a lip-smackingly good Zinfandel.


Winemaker's Notes:

This is an opulent, approachable Zinfandel with plum and raspberry jam aromas topped with coffee and toasted oak. Theflavors are bold, spicy and ripe with dollops of raspberries, blackberries and vanilla. The finish is structured with ample acidity and sleek tannins. While this displays much of the power and ripeness of the vintage, it is still a beautifully balanced wine.
