This was not on the list of wineries to visit, but I am so glad I did. This is their 41st anniversary and they are clearly doing something right. I had a wonderful wine tasting that covered the whole spectrum of their reds and discovered some new gems. Their Zinfandels are delicious and the surprise was the Petite Zin Rose. Some people still associate Rose with a syrupy sweet wine and Dry Creek dispelled that completely. The Petite Zin Rose is a crisp approachable wine that shows the character of the zinfandel while still letting hints of strawberry come through. It is perfect for summer months. Dry Creek's Meritage was also a pleasant surprise and lived up to its name completely.
While you are there, enjoy the picnic grounds and the beautiful surroundings.
