About Our Ratings

St. Francis 2013 Zinfandel Reserve, Dry Creek Valley
This Reserve Zin is a combination of both valley floor and hillside Zinfandel from the northern end of Dry Creek Valley. The vineyard ripened at the beginning of October 2013. This was a warm, dry year that allowed winemakers to carefully pick by flavors not just Brix levels. The grapes were hand-sorted and underwent an extended cold-soak for five days. Infrequent pumpovers during fermentation allowed for greater color extraction and the ability to control tannin levels. They complemented this fleshy wine by ageing it in 60% new French oak barrels for 20 months to achieve full integration. Robert Parker scored this 94 and said "The 2013 Zinfandel Reserve, which was aged 20 months in French oak, is really sensational, with a dense ruby/purple color, beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit, a judicious use of toasty oak, full-bodied opulence, a multi-layered mouthfeel, and a spectacular finish of 45 or more seconds. This is a great Zinfandel from Dry Creek to drink over the next decade." Very Limited!
