"Offers briary raspberry and underbrush aromas, leading to modest dried plum and licorice flavors. Drink now through 2015. 2,700 cases made. " (WS)

"Moderately ripe and led by defined Zinfandel berries in both its aromas and flavors, this medium-full-bodied efforts gets good marks for the price. It leans a little to the jammy side as it goes, but it does not dry out as very ripe wines often do, and it sports a good bit of lively acid for balance. Reviewed: May 2012 (CG)

"Plungerhead has sourced Zinfandel from all over the place, but this bottling is their best ever. It defines Dry Creek Valley Zin, being richly tannic and soft, with deep, sweet flavors of wild raspberries, white chocolate, espresso and gingerbread cookie. The alcohol is high, but that’s Dry Creek Zin. " (WE)
