First coined by Dry Creek Vineyard in 1987, the term “Old Vine” has special meaning to our family winery. For this bottling of our Old Vine Zinfandel, the vines average more than 100 years in age and in some cases, nearly 140 years old! This vintage presents alluring aromatics of blackberry, boysenberry and fresh raspberry with notes of cocoa powder, cardamom, toasty cedar and nutmeg. On the palate, brambly layers of black cherry, blackberry and boysenberry come forward with nuances of coriander, marzipan and espresso. The wine is complex, with bright acidity complimented by a long, lingering finish. The tannins are structured but soft, and lend a round, rich mouthfeel that pairs excellently with pork, burgers, steak and Italian sausage.
