In The Name Of…..Truett – Hurst Three Vineyard Zinfandel. Dry Creek Valley

Sometimes I like to give a little bit of information about the winery and AVA.

Located in Sonoma County, Dry Creek AVA is located outside of Healdsburg. Also sometimes known as Dry Creek Valley, it was created by the Dry Creek (of course) a tributary of the Russian River. Cabernet and Zinfandel are the two most planted red grapes with Sauvignon Blanc the white.

Truett Hurst, located right on the creek planted mainly with Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Owned by the Hurst and Dolan families and keeping with their desire for sustainable farming. Virginia Lambrix is the winemaker ( and a fantastic one at that). A must visit winery on any trip to Sonoma. Take a minute and sit by the creek and enjoy the beauty.

The three vineyard zin is as it says a blend of three vineyards. The aromas of raspberry and roses comes forth as you pull the plug on this one. Ripe and intense fruit flavors coat your mouth with each sip. Full and rich raspberry with notes of plum and smoke. Cinnamon and pepper ends a very long finish. Delicious. Enjoy this one any time, but definitely a good summer red for grilling meats.
