Winemaker Notes

Dry Creek Valley, a subappellation of Sonoma County, is nestled between the Alexander Valley to the east and the Russian River Valley to the southwest. Throughout the summer growing season the area benefits from warm temperatures during the day and coastal cooling in the late afternoon, though fog seldom impacts the region during the day. Long warm days are ideal for bringing grapes to ripeness while cool nights preserve natural acidity. Zinfandel loves heat, which gives the grape its distinctive jammy note. Zinfandel thrives in Dry Creek Valley, where it is the most recognized red grape varietal grown. The 2007 vintage commenced after a warm summer. The heat held during the vintage and fully mature grapes were harvested that were bursting with varietal flavor, had fleshy textures and smooth finishes.

Dry Creek Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

View all products

A multifaceted and highly reputable sub-region of Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley is responsible for a wide range of wine styles—both red and white. One of the smallest AVAs in California, Dry Creek Valley has a winning combination of ideal geography and climate. Fertile, well-drained soils create concentrated varietal character while long, warm days, bookended by cool nights, allow grapes to reach full phenolic ripeness and balance. The warm and welcoming appellation is home to a number of family-owned vineyards and wineries that place a strong emphasis on sustainable farming practices.

Zinfandel reigns supreme here and still produces in a great number of very old vineyards—often 100 years old or older. These old vines create a powerful, voluptuous and sultry wine unlike those of any other region. Sauvignon Blanc, the valley’s signature white grape, also performs exceptionally well. Many other varieties grow comfortably here, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Syrah. Petite Sirah is often found in blends with Zinfandel.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
