Winemaker Notes

Dark, yet fresh, brambly fruit dominate the nose with upfront notes of blackberry, raspberry, plum and dark cherry. Forward berry-driven fruit is accented by classic Dry Creek Valley baking spice and more subtle dried fruit notes. Palate and texture are rich and full with a dense, flavorful mid-palate. Flavors linger pleasantly in a long, persistent finish.

From vegetarian to grilled meats -- from classic Mediterranean to spicy ethnic, this wine will surely surprise those who have Zinfandel pigeonholed with only certain kinds of foods.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Spicy, tangy and tart, this well-made wine is softly layered and complex—a moderate and balanced version of the variety that shows cranberry and red-cherry goodness dotted in cinnamon and black pepper.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Zinfandel is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and opens with warm plums, baked cherries and baking spices with nuances of dried flowers, fungi and damp earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a lovely savory character with plenty of spicy sparks and a chewy frame, finishing with a refreshing lift.

Quivira Vineyards Winery Video

Family owned since its founding in 1981, proprietors Pete and Terri Kight were drawn to the estate’s

natural beauty and unspoiled rural character. With 63 acres of vines planted at Wine Creek Ranch, and

another 26 at two sites close by, today Quivira Vineyards is a leading producer of Zinfandel,

Sauvignon Blanc and Rhône varieties, with a reputation for intentional winegrowing and a thoughtful

commitment to organic farming.

Quivira’s environmental stewardship has been all-encompassing. Beginning in 1998, we partnered with

conservation agencies in restoring Wine Creek and Dry Creek for their native Steelhead and Coho

populations. We keep beehives to promote pollination of our garden’s genetically diverse produce

varieties and raise animals to provide fertilization material. It is our philosophy that the vines are only

as healthy as the entire ranch therefore we farm holistically and sustainably, and further our

commitment with each vintage.

Dry Creek Valley Wine

Sonoma County, California

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.
