    May 20, 2017 - Mature and has plenty of flavor. I do not see this improving further. The predominant notes are dry fruits: raisins, figs, dried currants, dried cherries. Some mocha. Not much tannin or bright acidity left.

    December 24, 2014 - We visited the Mauritson tasting room near Healdsburg this past summer and had a very nice experience there. We brought home a bottle of their Rockpile Syrah however this Dry Creek Zinfandel was purchased at Stirling Wines here in NJ.

    Our bottle of the Dry Creek Zin didn't quite live up to some of the other notes provided here. While it had some nice dark berry notes (reminded me of Tazo Brambleberry ice tea), the alcohol was getting in the way of the fruit. As a result, I found this wine to be inconsistent from sip to sip. For me it was ok, but not great.

    I should definitely mention that I noticed when I brought this up from the cellar that there was some slight leakage around the cork that had penetrated the foil seal and ran down the side of the bottle. While the wine definitely wasn't corked or oxidized, this certainly could have contributed to some bottle variation. It would be worth picking up another bottle to see if that one fares any better.
