Winemaker's Notes

The rich hue of Quivira's Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel leaves the impression that this is going to be a big powerful Zin, but you quickly discover the wine is well-behaved. A brambly, berry-driven Zinfandel that delivers not only classic Dry Creek flavors of raspberries, but also wonderful boysenberry and plum notes accented by a good dose of baking spices and just a touch of oak.

While it would work well with just about any grilled meat, it has a particular affinity for barbecue.

Critical Acclaim

"Brisk acidity, dried herbs, green olives, white pepper and minerals add complexity and earthiness to the raspberry, cherry and cola flavors of this Zin. It’s dry on the finish, and stylish enough to accompany fine steaks and rich cheeses, with of course plenty of crusty bread. "
89 Points

"Crisp and nicely focused, with bright cherry and underbrush aromas and zesty raspberry and herb flavors."
88 Points

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
