Finally... the 2013s are ready to drink. Perfect acidity and balance, great with food. Restrained, age-worthy. 14.7% ABV

Dark berries and dark spice (clove and peppercorn), yet not full blown and in yo' face. Restrained and lovely.

Very structured, rich core of dark fruit, tannins are firm but not inaccessible. As usual, an excellent Dry Creek zin. It will certainly reward some more cellaring.

For me, this is the best Zinfandel in America. Ages nicely. Aromas of dark fruit. Smooth on the palate.
