St. Francis Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2015
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Dry Creek Valley|
Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Zinfandel Reserve Dry Creek Valley has a nose of baked berries, spice and raisin cake with notes of dried flowers and dusty soil. The palate is full-bodied, big and rich with chewy tannins, tart fruit and a long finish. 800 cases produced.
Wine EnthusiastBrimming with a sweetness of baked cherry and molasses, this is a soft, rounded and robustly ripe wine that carries its weight well. A touch of structured, high-toned acidity complements the power and outer reaches of excess, allowing the experience on the palate to speak.
Wine SpectatorTightly wound and trim, with black raspberry, licorice and cracked pepper flavors that finish with grippy tannins. Best after 2018. 800 cases made.
