A more compact personality emerges from the 2011 Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley. Iron, red berries, smoke and tobacco all make an appearance, but it is the wine’s energy and thrust that speak loudest. It will be interesting to see if the 2011 fattens up in bottle. Today, it is a bit on the lean side, despite its considerable appeal. (AG)
Full ruby. Heady, explosively perfumed aromas of candied black and blue fruits, incense and licorice, with a powerful spicy topnote. Sappy and palate-coating, offering ripe dark fruit and floral flavors and showing a smooth, velvety texture. Closes broad and very long, with lingering spiciness and soft tannins. Excellent value here. (ST)
Focused and subtly powerful, with raspberry and black pepper aromas that lead to sleek but complex plum, licorice and loamy sage flavors. Drink now through 2019. (TF)
