Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Dry Creek Zinfandel exhibits forward aromas of juicy blackberries, wild blueberries and notes of clove on the nose. Classic peppery spice and toasty oak enhance the bright, abundant fruit flavors. It possesses structure, complexity and balance. This full-bodied wine has a dense mouthfeel, bright fruit and soft tannins, promising a lengthy future.
