I love when that happens!It was my good fortune to stumble upon the Lambert Bridge Winery in Healdsburg, California.I was hooked the moment I drove through the gate... Read More

  • For several reasons, the Dry Creek Valley really is ground-zero for the finest Zin production. Not only are there a disproportionate number of ancient vineyards here, but they tend to be planted on the hillsides, which is not all that surprising in this rather narrow, long valley. The position of the valley and the ridges that form its b... Read More

  • Forchini Vineyards 'Old Vine' Dry Creek Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Deep, earthy, brownie, a touch malty with dusty earth and rosebush accents to the liquory, orange oil accented raspberry fruit. Theres even a small floral element at play here. Seamless, a touch soft perhaps but this really has a bit of elegance in the mouth with those same orange oil and floral nuances contributing some depth to the black ras... Read More

  • Forchini Vineyards 'Old Vine' Dry Creek Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This smells dark, rich and spicy with a smoky, briary top note over the slightly gamy boysenberry fruit. Bright and chewy in the mouth with a slinky, silky feel. Lovely balance and texture to this wine with an earthy core of boysenberry and wild blackberry fruit that leads to a spicy, earthy, slightly licorice tinged finish that features a retu... Read More
