2005 Dry Creek Zinfandel
This is classically styled Dry Creek Zinfandel that's probably even more elegant given the long, cool growing season of 2005. The nose smacks of boysenberry, raspberry, and plum and is underpinned with black pepper notes that will become more forward as the Zzin and Syrah continue to meld in the bottle. The palate is fleshy and ripe and full-bodied, showing raspberry fruit and vanilla oak. The finish is lush and lingering.
Style: Full, Bold
