Wine Review: This slightly cloudy dark red colored Zinfandel from Dry Creek Vineyards opens with a pleasant mild cranberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused oak and plum blend with hints of blackberry and black pepper. The finish is dry and medium tannins drift away nicely. This Zin would pair nicely with a juicy burger off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is delicious and beautifully balanced. This vintage presents enticing aromatics of black cherry, boysenberry and plum with a hint of toast and white pepper. On the palate, brambly flavors of black raspberry and dark chocolate come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by notes of berry jam and a touch of ginger. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel
