Dry Creek Heritage Zinfandel 2021
|California, Sonoma County
Rich vanilla bean and cocoa aromas lead to opulent blackberry and black cherry flavors in this lavishly oaked, well-polished and moderately tannic wine. It will benefit from a few years' age to let the spicy oak notes mellow a bit. Best from 2025.
A briar patch in a bottle, this hearty red abounds with bold raspberry, roasted anise and smoky black pepper flavors that build tension and structure toward broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2031. 19,892 cases made.
Composed of 80% Zinfandel, 19% Petite Sirah, and the rest Carignan and pouring a dark red hue, the 2021 Zinfandel Heritage Vines is ripe with lush berries, mocha, and spice. Black-fruited, with ripe fig and a note of tea leaf, as well as sweet tannins and a supple texture, this opulent red has a youthful charm and would be outstanding alongside BBQ.
