2011 Wine Guerrilla Carreras Ranch Old Vine Zinfandel, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, CA, $40 (S) – Rating 92

The vineyard was planted in 1916 with an Italian field blend of  Zinfandel, Alicante Bouchet, Petite Sirah, Napa Gamay and Chasselas Dore’. The blend creates a distinct richness without being jammy. A full nose of blackberry, boysenberry and black cherry. Juicy acidity with flavors of blueberry, blackberry and boysenberry with notes of raspberry and spice in the long finish. This is what single-vineyard wines are all about. Buy This Wine
