SAINI VINEYARDS ZINFANDEL, DRY CREEK VALLEY 2014
The 2014 Zinfandel Dry Creek has briary fruit, not quite the density of the 2013s, but beautiful berry fruit, especially raspberries and black cherries, medium to full body, and again, stunning purity. I think this is the first time I’ve had a good look at these wines, and I’m impressed. Drink this one over the next 5-6 years.
NVWE Notes: A complex melange of ripe fresh fruit, dried fruit and savory spice, the nose of this juicy Zin crams notes of red and black cherry, plum jam, dried red currant, raspberry, red rose, black tea, black peppercorn and star anise into a very inexpensive package. It is weighty on the palate and as rich in flavor as expected, with the fresh and dried fruit notes in the forefront, but flavors of rose, black tea, tobacco, vanilla, star anise, clove and other baking spices in close support. Built for grilled meats and ripe cheeses, it is ready to enjoy. 990 cases produced.
