This is classic Dry Creek Zin from vines on the eastside benchlands. The varietal has been grown in this spot since the mid-19th century, and the vines are the original clones. In 2011 the crop was smaller than usual, and ripened very slowly due to a relatively cool summer. The wine shows its typical Dry Creek berry-dark fruit character against a background of tart cherry, and the first sip invites the next. While drinking beautifully now, it has the stuffing to gain further complexity over the next several years.
