One sip is all you need to know that this is classic Dry Creek Zin. It's full-bodied, softly tannic and subtly oaked, but the giveaway is the intensely briary, brambly wild berry and black pepper spice flavors. Drink this lusty wine over the next few years with short ribs or the greatest barbecue you can come up with.
