Sonoma’s Dry Creek Valley is a California benchmark for Zinfandel – an exceptionally rural AVA with no traffic lights and few notable landmarks other than a historic general store, this little stretch of land where time seems to stand still is famous for producing some of the best expressions of Zin you can find anywhere.
Lot 705 comes to us from a proprietor with a trophy cabinet loaded with gold medals galore and a gallery of highlights including decades of appearances on presidential wine lists – quite the mic-drop indeed. Aged for over a year in both French and American oak, it’s a more elegant and refined Zin than you might be used to – medium-bodied, but still packing a punch at just under 16%.
Too bad this one went so fast...
Really nice RRV Zin...
an old friend
Welcome back Lot 705, missed you... Beautiful Dry Creek Zin, all fruit and bramble.
A lighter Zin
This was good, but a little light for my tastes. I’m with Karen (below) on this one. It did hold up nicely to a spicy peanut sauce chicken dish we had. But we’ve enjoyed the deep red full bodied Reds that Cam has found. This was not one of those.
Not usually a fan
My wife and I aren’t usually Zin drinkers we prefer cabs and pinots but we were very shocked with how well we like this wine! It was a fuller bodied Zin which is probably why we enjoyed it so much!
Very good Zinfindel
Very much enjoyed this Zin, I'm not a huge fan of Zin, but this one was quite good!
Excellent Sonoma Zin!
The Dry Creek AVA produces some great Zins. Medium bodied with plum and spice notes. Well balanced. It was better the second night. Decanting is recommended.
"Light" for a Zin
This wine is the color of a pinot noir; the body was light to me, as well. It was very food friendly--good with what we were eating and likely good with many foods. However, I like a second glass after dinner to savor, and this flavor was too light for that. I opened a bottle of Lot 725 Zinfandel to compare, and it hit the spot. The leftover 705 and 725 were both good with dinner the next night.
Wish I could get more
Great Zin. Drank over a couple of days. Day 2 was better than day 1.
Out of stock...Out of the good luck
Damn, this is a phenomenal Zin. I will puppy guard what I have.
This is an excellent bottle of Zin from the Dry Creek Valley. Full bodied and bursting with flavors. Hope it makes a return.
