Dickerson is a fine, old vine Napa Valley floor site. I love the lifted, exotic pine scented, brambleberry aromas, and the meshing with oak spice and chocolate. This has a tension, minerality and acid that many old vine zins lack, and that many Ravenswood zins lack, for that matter. It has the big alcohol - 14.5% stated - although I suspect higher. Yet there is a dusty, firm, drying ambiance, riven with evergreen forest. Quite delicious. Excellent length. Score: 93 (David Lawrason, WineAlign.com, Mar 2013)
