“Some wineries really understand that Zinfandel is for drinking with food and not just hammering the palate. Dry Creek Vineyard has consistently been exceptionally good at this, and this wine is a perfect example.”

The 2011 Zinfandel Heritage Vines is another delicious blend of 84% Zinfandel and 16% Petite Sirah with surprising ripeness and richness. This front end-loaded Zin is very much in keeping with the better 2011s. It offers a burst of spice and briery fruit in its cleanly made, impressive personality. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.

Wine maker notes
The 2011 Heritage Vines Zinfandel presents a wonderful profile of blueberry, red currants, and silky structure that speak to the cool 2011 vintage. An additional few minutes in the glass reveal underlying mineral nuances that make this wine really stand out. The moderate alcohol nature of this Zin provides smooth tannin and structure, making the palate very well balanced. The fruit is evident but not overpowering, with layers of black cherry, mixed berries, currants and all spice. This Zinfandel speaks to the old vine DNA of this wine, with earthy mixed berry characters and subtler hints of white and black pepper. The finish lingers on, creating a mouth-watering desire for another sip.

Blend: 84% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah
