This vintage of Old Vine Zinfandel displays wonderful aromas of white pepper, cardamom and black cherries. After a few minutes in the glass, additional elements of tobacco, espresso and chocolate begin to shine through. The essence of these old vine vineyards are fully displayed on the palate with succulent fruits such as plum, blueberries, and strawberries. The tannins are smooth and well integrated creating a silky experience, leading to a long and lingering finish.
Dry Creek Vineyard is one of the few remaining family owned wineries left in California. With more than 35 years of grape growing and winemaking experience, our efforts continue to focus on the quality of wine in the bottle. When founder David Stare started Dry Creek Vineyard, he began the winery with a single-minded effort to offer the highest quality wine possible at a reasonable price. Dave realized that the success of the winery hinged upon providing that “something special” in the bottle to keep customers coming back for more. Today, the second generation continues to build upon those early-established values. Dave’s daughter, Kim Stare Wallace and her husband, Don Wallace, are wholly committed to the quality of wine produced at Dry Creek Vineyard. With an eye toward the future, Kim and Don continue their passion to produce high quality wines while being mindful of the original vision of the winery.
