Winemaker Notes

Our 2008 Heritage Zinfandel, blended from Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley fruit, shows off all that is appealing about Zinfandel. The warm 2008 vintage gave us beautifully ripe grapes. Aromas of raspberries, cherries and spicy oak are followed by flavors of blueberry pie and dark chocolate. This is a very well balanced wine, flavorful and smooth, made for daily enjoyment.

Connoisseurs' Guide

Nicely crafted, genuinely juicy blackberryish fruit buttressed by suggestions of caramelly oak makes the early going here, and the wine follows on the palate with medium-full and slightly fleshy impressions. There is enough underlying acidity to keep the proceedings alive, but this one impresses as an open, drink now wine.

WS 88
Wine Spectator

Zesty and full of nice pepper notes, with black raspberry aromas and roasted dill, plum and cedar flavors that finish with appealingly rustic tannins. Drink now through 2014.
