Press & Reviews
Medium ruby in color, the 2019 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard has alluring black fruits on the nose with accents of salted licorice, earth and blood orange. The medium-bodied palate is grainy and fresh with spicy black fruits and a long finish with appealing earthy nuances. It's youthfully coiled and deserves another 2-3 years in bottle. 1,410 cases produced.
The 2019 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard is a dense, powerful wine. Inky red fruit, rose petal, spice and cedar all run through this potent, Howell Mountain Zinfandel. Firm tannins need time to soften, but there is a lot of wine. The Dragon is one of the most distinctive bottlings in the range. This is a true mountain wine, but it is less forbiddingly tannic and brooding than the Rattlesnake Ridge.
