Quivira Dry Creek 2011 Zinfandel

Quivira Dry Creek 2011 Zinfandel, $16.99-$19.99, 88 points, poured a deep maroon trending rosewood-red toward the heavily draped glass wall and clear wine ring.
Profuse aromas of blueberry, wild blackberry, cedar, and a floral component were very good.
Medium-bodied with fair-plus acidity and easy, but supportive tannin carried flavors reflective of the aromas.
Finished fair on the warm 14.2% alcohol and mild cayenne pepper.
Quivira Dry Creek 2011 Zinfandel paired well with my hot buffalo-wings, celery, and chunky blue cheese.

  1. I've liked this label in the past, but the last few times I bought some, it seemed they weren't as vibrant to me. Lots of people recommend it but I just don't get the appeal anymore. Plus around here, it's closer to your top range price.

    1. John, our palates seem to be in sync! It had been almost 5 years since I tasted this wine ( the 2006 vintage), and though I liked the 2011 (a very good vintage for Zin) a little better, I really should have described this Zin as a better than average table-wine, but not more than that.
