Kicking The New Year Off Right!
It was a sterling selection! Not only is Dry Creek Vineyard an outstanding producer of Old Vine Zinfandel, they actually coined the term “old vine” back in 1987. The Dry Creek Valley region of Sonoma produces some of the best Zin in California.
An old vine vineyard is one that has vines more than 50 years old. In the case of the Dry Creek Vineyard Old Vine Zin, the vines are all 95 years or older, some nearly 130 years old! The older the vine, the fewer grapes produced – but each grape has concentrated flavors sought for the very best bottles of wine.
The SRP for this bottle is $35 – a nice value for such a flavorful experience. We rate this bottle highly. It was nice to sip in the party’s aftermath as we reflected on a year that seemed to go by so quickly and looked forward to a new year. Cheers to you. We wish you many delicious experiences in 2019.
