Wine Review: This pale garnet colored Zinfandel from Dry Creek Vineyards opens with black plum and black raspberry bouquet with hints of wild strawberry, orange zest, and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth, and approachable. The flavor profile is mild cherry and black plum blend with notes of gravely minerality and light oak. We also detected hints of strawberry, vanilla, cranberry, and black tea. The finish is dry and its flavors, acidity, and fine tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this very food friendly and versatile Zin with a beef carpaccio or lamb stew. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This delicious bottling is the fifth vintage of Zinfandel produced from our Farmhouse Vineyard in the Russian River Valley. Initially, the aromas show fruit-forward tones of boysenberry, blueberry, and cranberry. Subtle notes of coriander and cedar come forward after several minutes of airing. On the palate, flavors of black raspberry, cherry and spiced plum mix with soft undertones of fine leather, white pepper, and dark chocolate. The wine is supple with tremendous complexity and silky tannins. The coastal influence leads to a finish that is clean and pure with a refined elegance.
