“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.
