Dry Creek 2008 Zinfandel Heritage



I have always loved Zinfandel grown in Sonoma’s Dry Creek and Russian River Valley appellations, and this blend was grown in both regions. It’s elegant in style yet offers a mouth-filling array of blackberries and black cherries, highlighted with tangy raspberry and plum notes. The long, tasty finish is pleasantly spicy with white pepper notes. Blended with 18 percent Petite Sirah, the Zinfandel came from old vines grafted to a new vineyard. Quite drinkable alone, it’s also a good choice for roast beef, pulled pork sandwiches, or a good pizza. Available at BevMo! only $15.99, it’s a good buy for this Sonoma-based Zinfandel.
