Winery Notes:

On the palate, a full range of fresh red and dark fruit, with just a small jammy concentration, fans out into a rich and round mouthfeel with balanced, refreshing acidity. Savory notes of graphite, chocolate and vanilla add layers of flavor to the fruit, finished by an accent of classic Dry Creek Valley baking spice.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a heck of a value, well-made, well-integrated and structured. Baked bread and dark-cherry flavors are supported by thick tannin and complementary high-toned acidity, the finish a rich, rewarding end note of dark chocolate and coffee.

Wine AdvocateMedium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Zinfandel delivers notes of Black Forest cake, blueberry pie and crème de cassis with notions of spice box, fragrant soil and dried roses. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives just enough earthy/savory flavors with a chewy frame and fruity finish. 4,980 cases produced.
