2009   Dry Creek Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, CA, $30 (S)  – Rating 91

A lighter body than many super jammy Zins with an enticing nose of spicy cherry, blackberry and smoke.  A blend of 86% Zinfandel and 14% Petite Sirah from vines that average over 90 years old. The palate offers well integrated flavors of cherry, blueberry, leather, dark spice and tobacco box with notes of espresso and cocoa in the long finish. There is a definite undertone of earthiness that adds complexity. Buy This Wine
