Outer quote mark Medium garnet colored, the 2014 Zinfandel Cortina offers baked black cherries, mulberries, prunes and eucalyptus notes with a Chinese five spice and forest floor undercurrent. Full-bodied, the palate delivers a relatively fresh style with plenty of spicy black fruit preserves backed up by lively acid and a light grip of chewy tannins, finishing long and earthy.

You could attribute it to the dry farming methods, the old/perfectly located vines, or the careful and meticulous production, but either way, this wine shows some of the most elegant depth I have ever tasted. Blueberries, blackberries, and black cherries are carried by a white pepper spice throughout a long, enjoyable finish.

Dry Creek Valley is always noted for its slightly cooler climate lending to brighter, more high-toned red fruit and spice notes and the Cortina is a classic Dry Creek Zin with its beautiful aromatics of sweet savory herbs matched by the presence of black raspbery, red plum and licorice. Accompanying the lifted black and red fruit on the nose is an assortment of subtle szechuan peppercorn, sweet bramble and savory baking spices.

The base for this wine comes from a Dry Creek Valley vineyard planted in 1972. Since this was a year before I was born, I think even by French standards this is considered “old vines.” Deliciously fresh and juicy, the Cortina Zinfandel glides across the palate with grace and ease. There is a wonderfully purity to the fruit in this wine. It is not heavy or overbearing but still a ripe, full-bodied wine. Alcohol is under 15%.

This highly rated Zinfandel is mouthwatering, luscious and clean, with a thread of gorgeous acidity. The fruit is grown in Chen Vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, which is known for gravelly soil and breezes that contribute to the high-toned red fruit on the palate. Notes of juicy raspberry, grilled Asian plum, nectarine and blackberry waft in and out, and with its medium-bodied, yet condensed and vibrant mouthfeel, you'll want more than just one glass.
