This is our fourth vintage from vines on the benchland
overlooking Dry Creek Valley from the north east. The soils are
identical across the bench as are the climatic conditions giving
the wines the chance to demonstrate consistent character as they
mature. The original vineyards were abandoned around 1920, but
the blocks have been gradually replanted over the last thirty
years. This wine is from vines replanted in 2000, using several
selections of budwood from our own old-vine vineyards. The East
Bench zinfandel is classic Dry Creek – rich and structured with
brambly dark fruit and chalky yet balanced tannins.
"A rich, lusty and satisfying
Zinfandel, showing classic varietal flavors of ripe, wild
red berries, tobacco, soy sauce, bacon and white pepper.
Alcohol is notable in the slight heat and glyceriney
sweetness, but those elements are welcome parts of the
wine’s personality. Drink now."
"The 2009 Zinfandel East Bench is a big, burly wine loaded with dark cherries, flowers, tobacco and sweet herbs, all of which come together on a medium-bodied frame. It shows lovely length and personality, although some rough edges remain. With air, though, some of those angular contours begin to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019."
