This is a Zinfandel for those who know their Zins, a sophisticated and beautifully lifted elixir with a full, liquidy palate and aromas of wild cherry, candied raspberry and hibiscus, all you would expect from Dry Creek Old Vine Zinfandel. The real kicker is the surprising herbaceous midpalate, which differs from the 2015, which is more fruit driven and restrained. Notes of star anise and white mushroom peek through the fruit laden suspension with a bright and refreshing acidity.
