Wine not just get to the point!
Rating: 3.85 outta 5
Wine: 2015 Dry Creek Vineyards Heritage Vines Zinfandel
From: California; Sonoma County
Grapes: 79% Zinfandel, 20% Petit Sirah, 1% Carignane
Taste: Dark fruits … blueberry, tar, raisins but, not too jammy … spicy … cayenne black peppercorns, vanilla and yumminess.
Other Stuff: This Zin is pretty darn great. The Dry Creek Heritage vines Zinfandel is one of my Aha wines from when caught the wine bug a few years ago.
Grafting century old budwood onto new rootstocks makes a cool link to the past and a great story too. If you like your Zin’s with a little more character, this one is definitely worth a try.
It was also the perfect 4th of July partner for the BBQ bacon burgers with avocado, tomato, and homemade pickles that we made.
