This is a strong year for Dickerson Vineyard. A bright medium red, it is bursting with bright, red raspberry scents, Asian spices, flowers, and minerals, topped with perfect levels of acidity. The long, focused finish has full, ripe tannins and hints of mint and chocolate. Classic Dickerson.
"Hard to exaggerate the beauty of this
single-vineyard Zin. It has the balanced elegance
of a fine Cabernet, yet with Zinfandel's exuberant,
briary flavors of wild forest berries, spices,
Mexican molé sauce, anise, cola and sandalwood.
Delicious and compelling, and a perfect pairing
with your best grilled meats. Editors' Choice."
"Bright medium red. Complex bouquet of fresh red berries, Asian spices, flowers and minerals. Nervy red berry flavors pack a solid punch, especially in light of the wine's pinot-like weight and texture. Repeats the sweet red fruit and floral notes on the long, focused finish. "A classic Dickerson," noted Joel Peterson, "with a low pH of about 3.3 and very good acidity." 92-93"

"Rich tannins give this a soft, cushioned feel, their smoky blackness releasing ripe flavors of peach, leaving an impression that's vermilion red in the end. A sweet, soft zin for lam roasted rare. "
