Past Vintages

2009 Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
The vintage of 2009 was one of the best vintages from this valley in many years, and our 2009 Dry Creek Zinfandel was no exception. The weather at harvest was ideal—a long, steady heat that allowed the grapes to perfectly ripen without developing any overripe characteristics. The 2009 Dry Creek zinfandel has everything you look for in a high-end wine from Dry Creek: wonderful fruit flavors of black cherry and raspberry, mineral and earth, and clove and black pepper spice.
2008 1.5L Zinfandel Todd Brothers Ranch Old Vines
This old-vine vineyard consistently produces one of the most sought-after wines that Dashe Cellars makes, and at this point in our history we’ve made Todd Brothers Ranch zinfandels for eleven vintages.
2010 Zinfandel Les Enfants Terribles, Heart Arrow Ranch
For the second year, we’ve made a wine from these beautiful organic- and biodynamically-grown vines up in the hills of Mendocino County, about 15 miles north of the town of Ukiah. The purity of flavor and complex midpalette are a break from the fruit-forward style of many Californian wines—it is different in structure than a typical California Zinfandel, but is extraordinarily complex and pleasing both in aroma and on the palate.
2008 Zinfandel, Todd Brothers Ranch Old Vines, Alexander Valley
This old-vine vineyard consistently produces one of the most sought-after wines that Dashe Cellars makes, and at this point in our history we’ve made Todd Brothers Ranch zinfandels for eleven vintages. These thick, gnarled vines planted on the steep red rock slope in Geyserville (in Alexander Valley, Sonoma county) always produce jet-black, intensely-flavored and very complex grapes.
2010 Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley
This is one of our most popular wines here at Dashe Cellars, and it’s a classic example of a Dry Creek zinfandel: luscious and velvety in texture, showing lush black cherry fruit and firm acidity, and extremely elegant and layered. Thick, dark, and intense, the wine is also balanced and surprisingly low in alcohol for a zinfandel, at 13.7%. Simply put, this is a delicious wine.
2011 Zinfandel Les Enfants Terribles, Heart Arrow Ranch
An unusual wine from one of the most pristine biodynamic farms in Mendocino County—a complete farm that produces vegetables and fruits, and raises cows, lambs, and chickens—this zinfandel is always a show-stopper.
