Perhaps Sonoma’s (if not all of California’s and hence the world’s) greatest appellation for growing top quality Zinfandel, the Dry Creek Valley is a small AVA sandwiched between the Russian River and Lake Sonoma. Despite a growing reputation as one of the premier wine travel destinations on the North Coast, it remains a tiny, rural area filled with family-owned vineyards, one deli, and no traffic lights.
Sourced a from a pioneering Dry Creek producer who was, understandably, quite proud of the wine (but not much willing to understand the state of the Zinfandel market these days), this deal took about eight months to wait out, but it was worth it. This is, if not the best, certainly among the best Zinfandels we’ve ever released. Pure pleasure in a glass.
Another great QPR
Needs decanting, but if you can wait, the reward is worthy. Day 2 and 3 and the wine was still soaring. Classic Dry Creek zin. Decant a good hour if you want a fuller initial experience.
This Zin is a win!
Everything you want from a Zin; full bodied, aromatic/flavorful. Perfect Zin to leisurely enjoy on any cold evening by the fire.
Soft berry, bramble and cocoa over a mash of fruit compote in the nose. Quite dark, for Zin, until the very edges. Once in your mouth red fruits galore dance around your tongue. Glad I have more than one or two bottles! This is a real lip-smacker that pulls you back for sip after sip.
Wish I had gotten more!
Total solid wine and a great value
Better than I thought it would be....
We really enjoyed this Zin! Too bad it's all gone. Hope something comparable is in stock soon.
One of our go to's for an everyday wine. Comparable to Saldo, but at nearly half-off.
Great wine for the price!
Should have bought more
I do not usually buy Zinfandel but thought I would give it a try after watching the review. I am glad that I did as it is big and bold but very smooth especially after sitting for an hour. I wish I would have purchased more than a couple of bottles.
I do not usually drink Zinfandel but tried it over the holidays. This has made be a Zinfandel fan!
Love it for the slightly spicy full bodied flavors!
