The 2019 Zinfandel Heritage Vines showed beautifully, with a pure, up-front, silky and textured style as well as classic plum and berry fruits, notes of incense, pepper, and orange blossom, supple tannins, and a great finish. Drink this charming, pleasure-bent beauty over the coming 5-7 years.

92pts Wine Enthusiast

Offering tremendous value for the quality, this wine is blended with 19% Petite Sirah. Tart, tangy red fruit, from plum to cherry, layers over undertones of baking spice, cigar box and crushed herb. It's a full-bodied and richly textured red.  Editors' Choice

The 2019 Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Vines Zinfandel is of the winery's consistent top wines. This wine shows up with bright berry aromas and flavors that last pleasingly long on the palate. Enjoy it with grilled ribeye, crabcake, and garden veggies. (Tasted: May 2, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Winemaker Notes

The 2019 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is delicious and wonderfully balanced. This vintage presents alluring aromatics of boysenberry, black cherry, and raspberry with nuances of toasty cedar, warm spices, and cocoa powder. On the palate, brambly flavors of dark berries come forward. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by deeper notes of mocha, white pepper, and wild sage brush. The tannins are silky and smooth to lend a round, rich mouthfeel. From start to finish, this remarkable wine offers refreshing acidity paired with excellent structure.

Blend: 81% Zinfandel, 19% Petite Sirah
