Wine Profile
Production Notes
A mélange of black and red fruit jumps out of the glass of the 2014 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel. Notes of cinnamon, baking spice and dark chocolate add complexity to the candied 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 7-10 years.
Winemaker Notes
While it is impossible not to compare one vintage to the next, the reality is that we should sit back and enjoy the subtle nuances that make them unique. In my opinion, however, in 25 years, when we look back on the 2012-2014 vintages, it will go down as the greatest three-year stretch California has ever seen. Each vintage is truly spectacular, yet undoubtedly unique, and to attempt to compare them against each other is simply an injustice.
