Wine Review: This dark red colored Zinfandel from Dry Creek Vineyards opens with a fragrant stewed black plum and red currant bouquet with hints of cedar and smoke. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, bright and fresh. The flavor profile is stony minerality and stewed black plum blend with notes of black tea and black raspberry . We also detected hints of black pepper, and Baker's chocolate. The finish is quite dry, and its grippy tannins build-up and linger and last for a very long time. The Tasting Panel would pair this Zin with lamb lollipops or duck breast. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Rising more than 800 feet off the valley floor, Vogensen Ranch is located on the back of Bradford Mountain and is one of the more extreme growing sites in all of Dry Creek Valley. Aromas of raspberry jam, cranberry and blackberry jump from the glass and intermix with spicy nuances of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Juicy flavors of boysenberry, raspberry and plum come forward, combined with deeper notes of cedar, milk chocolate and caramel. The silky, seamless tannins flesh out the vibrant finish of black and white pepper, all framed by refreshing acidity and superb roundness.
