Critical Acclaim

JD90 Jeb Dunnuck June 14, 2019

"Lastly, the 2016 Zinfandel Reserve checks in as 85% Zinfandel, 13% Petite Sirah, and 2% Syrah that spent a full 20 months in 60% new French oak. Tons of black fruits, scorched earth, singed cedar, and chocolate notes emerge from this effort, and it’s sweetly fruited, medium to full-bodied, and packs plenty of fruit while staying balanced. There’s some obvious oak here yet it plays well with the spicy Zinfandel fruit and this certainly offers pleasure. This was a great vintage for Zinfandel, and you see the quality here." (90 pts.)

RP90 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 19th Dec 2019

"The 2016 Zinfandel Reserve Dry Creek Valley has a deep ruby-purple color. The nose offers aromas of blueberries, boysenberry, raspberries and cherries with touches of apricot, cocoa, star anise and a spicy current. The medium to full-bodied palate offers loads of ripe fruits with firm, chewy tannins, juicy acidity and a long, sweet baking spice-laced finish. 640 cases were made." (90 pts.)

Sonoma County

Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco is one of California's most famous wine districts. While sometimes overshadowed by the reputation of its rival and neighbor, Napa Valley, Sonoma County has a longer history of viticulture and is twice the size of the former.

Thanks in part to a strong diversity of climates within Sonoma County, the district is home to outstanding examples from a whole host of grapes. Sonoma County Pinot Noirs are considered some of the finest in the state, and the Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels are remarkable. Chardonnays come in a variety of styles thanks to the varying temperatures in Sonoma County, and Cabernets and Merlots also thrive here.

Some of the more celebrated viticultural areas in Sonoma County include Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma Coast, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Carneros (parts of which fall within Napa Valley).

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
