There is no doubt that the 2012 vintage is a hard act to follow, but believe or not, the 2013 Zinfandels may be some of the best we have ever made. The growing season was near perfect, with slightly more heat than its preceding vintage. The incredible growing conditions, coupled with lower crop, size yielded wines with succinct fruit and incredible focus.  
 
High-toned berry fruit jumps out of the glass of the 2013 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Notes of cinnamon, baking spice and espresso bean add complexity to the hedonistic fruit. The entry is soft and lush, exhibiting flavors of rich oak and blackberry cobbler. The mouthfeel is seamless from start to finish, indicative of the perfectly integrated tannin and acid. Please enjoy this wine for the next 5-7 years.
