The 2010 vintage of Heritage Zinfandel presents an excellent cool vintage aroma profile of blueberry, red currants, earthy dustiness and mineral nuances. The low alcohol nature of this wine shines through immediately with silky smooth tannins and a firm grip of natural acidity and balance. The fruit is substantial with layers of black cherry, mixed berries, currants and allspice. This Zinfandel is superbly balanced and satisfying, repeating the earthy, mixed berry theme while also carrying forward subtler hints of white and black pepper. The finish lingers on creating a mouth-watering desire for another sip.
Blend: 88% Zinfandel, 12% Petite Sirah
Earthy & Spicy
Very nice on the nose. A bit more zip than a typical Sonoma Zin. Very "Meaty" on the bone with gobs of fruit on the pallet, a wonderful finish. Will buy again!
I didn't like this as much as some other Zins.
Big fan of dry creek!
