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.
Lot 744 is a stylistically perfect gem from one of the aforementioned family wineries that’s been crafting top rated Zinfandel for decades. This is easily one of the best Zinfandels we’ve ever acquired, and is ready to deliver pure pleasure immediately – no long-term cellaring necessary. Yours for less than half the original tasting room price.
Hit of the party
Had a few friends around for an outdoor event, with plenty of wine flowing. This bottle got the most positive responses, plenty of "this is really good, what is it?" comments. Well done CH as always.
This a bold dry zin
Another good Zin
Our favorite of the current CH zin offerings. Love these in the cooler months
Good daily drinker.
Juicy, rich with expressive flavors. Had to let lay down longer than usual.
One of my favorites
This wine is smooth and pairs well with most any entree. It was one of my first tastings of CH and still one of my favorite.
Let it breath
I wasn't very impressed initially but after it breathed for a longer period of time it was truly enjoyable. I will purchase this one again or something similar.
We could taste the barrel on this one. Good Zin.
Another quality Zin from CH
Very nice Wine. Medium bodied, this one is great with red sauced dishes or a steak. Pretty drinkable right now and at a very good price.
I really enjoyed this Zin, almost as much as the Russian River Valley. Definitely recommend!
Really enjoy this Zin with Pizza. Pours light for a Zin but has an excellent flavor profile. Would like to see more offerings from this region.
