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%.
2nd bottle, this one felt a bit less full bodied than the first, but likely due to a poor pairing on my side...
Favorite area for Zin! Big alcohol but extremely balance and love that tell tale spice.
This was a winner
loved this wine. Great spice and body. Will stock up.
It's been awhile since I opened a zin, and when this came in the club shipment it wasn't my first or second choice. But it was really tasty; not too heavy, not too anything really, just delicious. Then I had some with a pork peanut-ginger sauce and just wow. It was like one of those magical fancy-restaurant pairings that turns wine into something transcendent. Try it.
Super great zin!
Loved this wine. Loved the jam, spice - feel in the mouth and finish. Very nice.
A nice Zin for Sipping
We enjoyed Dry Creek Lot 705. We would describe it as a light-bodied Zin. It is nice for sipping as it is smooth with interesting oak notes that come across at the finish. That said, since we typically buy Zins to go with our dinner, there are other Cameron Hughes Zins that we have enjoyed more with our meals such as Lot 683 (Sierra Foothills).
This was some of the best Zin we have had. We will continue looking for this wine.
Love this wine. You can’t find a better zin at this price
A real nice Zinfandel
Dry Creek produces good Zin’s and this one is no exception. Pairs well with Pacific Salmon!
Excellent Sonoma Zin. Never met a Zin I did not like, and this is no exception.
