Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Zinfandel opens with a fragrant and attractive boysenberry bouquet with hints of black raspberry and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavors profile is a very tasty boysenberry with hints of refined minerality, blackberry and black licorice. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors linger and last for quite some time. This Zin is very food friendly and would pair very well with braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 vintage will go down on record as one of exceptional quality. Sexy and intense with a perfumed bouquet of ripe blackberries and sweet raspberries, this wine also shows hints of roasted coffee and vanilla. On the palate, the entry is soft and inviting. Suggestions of mineral add a serious quality to the layers of ripe black fruit that complement the refined tannins. Great vintages create wines of great vibrancy and balance and this wine is a classic example. Enjoy the 2012 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel for 5-8 years.
