Notes from the Winemaker:
The first thing that captures your eye is a rich, dark purple hue that's on the edge of inky. Aromas of mulberry, blackberry, and mocha entrance you further. A solid mouthfeel, the fruit reaffirms itself with blackberry, boysenberry, and raspberry preserves. Spicy notes of clove, dried sage, black pepper, and fennel appear along with Black Forest cake and that "vin sauvage" we prize. Well-structured with a solid mouthfeel, refreshing acidity, and velvety finish of fine tannins. Uncommonly layered, complex, and remarkably humble, our Dry Creek Zinfandel is a perfect complement to roasted sweet potatoes with fresh rosemary and sage sprinkled on top, beef stew (a crock pot would make this super easy), hearty grain salad with hazelnuts and cherries, or a selection of cheeses including Blue, Feta, or Stilton.

Ratings and Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"This youthful approachable wine has 15% Petite Sirah and tiny amounts of other varieties like Malbec, Mourvèdre and Montepulciano. Aged in French, American and Hungarian oak, it offers grip and oak around tart, rounded flavors of cranberry, strawberry and orange." - Virginie Boone (8/1/2020)

90 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Zesty and bright, with fresh and jammy raspberry and sweet spice flavors that linger on a succulent finish. Drink now through 2025. 5,048 cases made." - TF (Nov 30, 2020)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Medium to deep ruby in color, the 2017 Zinfandel Anderson Ranch was co-fermented with other grapes including Petite Sirah, Syrah, Mourvedre, Barbera and Malbec. It has a nose of black fruits, tar, earth and dried leaves, with a black-fruited, medium to full-bodied palate with a firm structure and just enough freshness. 5,048 cases produced." - Erin Brooks (23rd Jul 2020)
