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.
Would purchase this again. Nice Zin!
Love Dry Creek Zins
We've been fans of Dry Creek Zin for 20+ years - this is a great example. Great fruit, versatile, a bit spicy even. Well done (again).
Big fruit - great with meat
An easy drinking zin - it is a bit on the sweet side for me but offers potential with the right food - perhaps paella, grilled meats or steak. At a very good price.
Very very nice
How can a wine so good be such a great value. Bravo CH!
This wine was amazingly good, one of the best I've had from CH. Will be looking for more from Dry Creek in the future.
Great with Spanish/Mexican Dishes
We enjoyed this with a Mexican rice dish w/ chicken, bell peppers and tomatoes. It had just the right amount of spice and complexity to complement the meal. I, too, wish we had more bottles of this!
Didn’t know I could love a Zinfandel this much. Wow.
A very easy drinking Zin
I really loved this one. Ordered a second case when more became available. Too bad it is now out of stock. I will be watching for another Dry Creek Zinfandel in the future.
Glad I got more
Great Zin! I like cabs but as a change of pace this Zin is grat, nice and dry with some fruit. Will savor the remaining bottles over time
Nothing Dry About This Creek
I love the Zins from Dry Creek AVA, and this was no exception. Not too sweet and not too dry with just the right balance to make sipping alone a pleasure or pair with your favorite meat.
