This is classic Dry Creek Zin from vines on the eastside benchlands about 600 feet from the winery.  The varietal has been grown in this spot since the mid-19th century, and the vines are the original clones.  The wine shows a delicious Dry Creek berry-dark fruit character against a background of tart cherry, with a hint of cocoa powder and dusty berry.  There is something about it that brings to mind the impression of being in the middle of an orchard of ripe stone fruit on a pleasantly warm summer day. Here in Zinfandel country, favored food pairings for the varietal range ‘from soup to nuts’. One of our favorites is lamb, marinated in garlic, rosemary, olive oil, and wine—and grilled over live fire.
