90 Points - Wine & Spirits
This wine consistently shows why the Dry Creek Valley is the best place to grow Zinfandel on earth. Aromas of blackberry and plum jump from the glass and intermix with red raspberry and cherry. A few more minutes of aeration reveal a floral quality with some exotic spice notes that speak to the incredible terroir of our region. Flavors of dark berries come forward, however the red fruits explode on the mid-palate with anise, clove and a hint of lavender on the finish. The robust tannins flesh out on the finish all framed by refreshing acidity and superb balance. Aging potential: 6 years - until 2020.
