Drew Fuller Staff Selection • Fall 2015Wine lovers throughout the world, rightly or wrongly, often associate certain regions with specific grapes and/or styles of wine. For example, French wines are synonymouswith Bordeaux (primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) and Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), while Italy is Tuscany and the Sangiovese grape. For the United States, people associate Oregon with Pinot Noir, and California with Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. However, it is fair to say that Zinfandel wines from Sonoma County are the most historically significant wines in America. The first vineyard in Sonoma was planted in 1823, and it is this heritage that the owners of Dry Creek Vineyards want to honor with their 2013 "Heritage Vines"Zinfandel. The wine is a blend of 76%Zinfandel, 21% Petite Sirah, 2% Primitivo,and 1% Carignan. Aged for 15 months inFrench, American, and Hungarian oak, thiswine is delicious and beautifully balanced.It shows aromas of spice, blackberry, andtoasty oak, with flavors of raspberry,allspice, cassis, and Asian spice. The flavors are dense and complex, without any one element overpowering the wine.Definitely drier than some of the jammystyles of Zin, I think you will love this wine for its complexity. Consistently rated 90-92 points by Wine Enthusiast and WineSpectator. -Drew Fuller
