Zichichi Zinfandel Dry Creek 2005

Member Review by Gantt Hickman:

Enjoyed the soft punch it had. I usually refer to a red zin as being powerful enough to punch you in the face. This one was a little softer.

Zichichi Family Vineyard and Winery is family owned and operated in the heart of zinfandel country in Dry Creek Valley. Zinfandel and Petite Sirah vines were originally planted on St. George root stock in 1920.The vineyard, which is head-pruned and grows in rocky, gravelly soil, begins on a hill and rolls down to Dry Creek. My wife and I purchased the vineyard in 2000 and have been designing and planning the winery since that time. Construction was completed in the summer of 2006 thus helping to ensure the culmination of my dream of raising my family in the wine country. Traditional winemaking techniques are utilized in our wines allowing for the clearest expression of the vineyard. Our wines are of superlative quality and thus require a great deal of sacrifice. The wines are aged 20 months in French and American Oak and blended for the final product. Come visit our new winery complete with a rustic tasting room and enjoy a picnic overlooking the vineyard.

Could stand a bit more depth, yet it has incredible fruit and is not too big.

What a nice surprise! Pulled this from the cellar thinking it would be well past its prime, but it was great. Light in colour for a zin, but it still had some great front-end fruit. After an hour it opened up more, and the finish really smoothed out. Wish I had more of this!
