A rustically elegant place that produces a wide range of wine, [Dutcher Crossing] carries the Zin torch with aplomb. Dry Creek Valley is arguably the best place for Zinfandel in northern California and this [2014 Maple Vineyard Zinfandel] captures a sense of place. It is balanced with dark fruit flavors, intense spicy aromas, and richness that wraps your palate in pleasure. Make a stop there on your next trip to Sonoma and taste through a variety of their Zins.
