Unfiltered Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel 2019

Popped and poured; enjoyed over a 24-hour period with very little evolution. No formal notes. Enjoyed alongside the 2015. Tonight, the 2019 showed brighter and almost exercised some restraint. Definitely still showing signs of its youth and a more proportional mix of red and black bramble fruit when compared to the 2015 which was more black in profile. Balanced and endowed with great structure; acid showing particularly well. Better after 2025 but I wouldn’t at all be surprised to see myself enjoying this late into the 2030’s. — 9 hours ago

Cantina Zaccagnini

Il Vino Dal Tralcetto Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2020

Big aroma of dark dusty berries. Dry light sour cherries and berries upfront. Ends with a dry tannic dusty finish. Classic Italian montepulciano . From the QR code “ For Zaccagnini wine is a cult summarized in the “tralcetto”, the stick of vine placed on his bottles, which has become a symbol of excellence, passion and love for art and wine.” — 25 days ago

Ridge Vineyards

Lytton Springs Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Blend 2005

I had seen this bottle on the wine list (for only around €75) for a while but been worried it might be past its peak. But there is nothing to be afraid of here. Just an excellent example of how well quality old vine Californian Zin-blends can age in the skilful hands of the team at Ridge. Large ripe berries, spice, orange peel, dark chocolate, liquorice and charcuteries. Flavourful, expressive and balanced. Very enjoyable. — 2 months ago

Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Lovely, beautiful wine. Plums, cedar, black tea, herbs like tarragon, cherries, blackberry. The nose is wonderful to smell. Palate is so well balanced. More baking spice on the palate with a continued fresh herb and fruit. As it finish there’s a touch of fruit punch that comes through that I just love. It’s not sweet but like the essence of fruit punch. I need to buy more wines from this place. I always love them. — 16 days ago
