Dry Creek Old Vine Zinfandel 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
This producer shows its heritage and skill with the variety, blending it with 19% Petite Sirah and 3% Carignan. Clove and gingerbread flavors highlight the spicy palate, which finds companionship in bright cherry and cranberry before unleashing a flurry of black pepper on the finish.
Rustic and briary, in the old-school style, with low-key raspberry, forest floor and cracked pepper flavors that finish with big-shouldered tannins. Best after 2019. 2,118 cases made.
