Spicy cherry and blackberry jam swim in an enveloping bouquet of plums, chocolate covered raisins, black pepper, and white flowers with hints of cedar and fresh tobacco. Plush and juicy on the palate, with rich chocolate and boysenberry on the mid-palate, finishing long, persistent and pure with a chocolate-covered cherry and pepper flourish that doesn’t quit. Perfectly balanced throughout, this is a wonderful and classy expression of the rich, decadent style that put Dry Creek on the map as perhaps the world’s finest example of Zinfandel.
Cam Confidential

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.
