Winemaker Notes

This prized and historic wine presents a special aroma and flavor profile that is distinctive to the Dry Creek Valley appellation. Black and white pepper, dried flowers, potpourri, and bright cherry elements immediately arise from the glass. After several minutes of airing, the wine reveals layers of blackberry and raspberry fruit along with exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is rich and well-balanced with black raspberry, wild cherry, and brambly fruit. Several more sips reveal a bright earthy quality that is truly unique and distinctive. This is a wine that is seamless and well integrated from start to finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

This is so bold and rich, it could stop a tsunami of barbacue sauce and a herd of galloping babyback ribs. They say the age of the vines is between 90–110 years. This wine is sheer lusciousness, with flavors of wild blackberries, cola and plums, along with a blueberry jam and black pepper finish.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2011 Zinfandel Old Vine (over 90 years of age) is an impressive effort for the vintage. It offers a deep ruby/purple hue along with lots of clean, pure black cherry and blackberry fruit, spicy oak, earth and spice box notes. A blend of 83% Zinfandel and 17% Petite Sirah that tips the scales at 14.5% natural alcohol, this attractive Zin can be drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Dry Creek Vineyard, , California
Dry Creek Vineyard
In 1972, when David S. Stare opened the doors to Dry Creek Vineyard, it was the first new winery to be built in the Valley since Prohibition. Dry Creek created the first Sonoma Fume Blanc, originated the Dry Creek Valley AVA, and was an early advocate for Bordeaux-style blending.

Today, Dry Creek Vineyard is committed to vineyard diversity, vinifying individual lots of fruit separately, and then blending carefully for each final cuvee. Dry Creek Vineyard is also a leader in the stewardship of pre-Prohibition Zinfandel vines and vineyards, and has isolated a clone, called the "Heritage Clone," which is bottled separately from their "Old Vines" Zinfandel (containing wine only from vines no younger than 50 years old), and which has made very promising wines.

One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines...

View More

One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines, Prosecco is a specialty of northeastern Italy, spanning nine provinces of the Veneto and Fruili-Venezia Giulia regions. A higher-quality version that must meet more stringent production requirements is known as Prosecco Superiore and must come from the town of either Valdobiaddene or Conegliano. Prosecco can be produced as a still wine, a semi-sparkling wine (“frizzante”), or a fully sparkling wine (“spumante”)—the latter being the most common. While it is typically produced in a “brut” (dry) style, its fresh and fruity character preserved by the tank method of carbonation often makes it seem a bit sweeter than it is in reality. “Extra brut” styles incorporating higher levels of residual sugar are quite popular, however.

Made from the Glera grape, which was formerly and confusingly called Prosecco, these wines are notable for pleasant flavors of peach, pear, melon, green apple, and honeysuckle. Lower pressure during the carbonation process means that the bubbles are lighter and frothier than in Champagne or other traditional method sparkling wine, and less persistent. Prosecco is also a great choice to blend with orange juice for mimosas for a classic brunch beverage.
