The Russian River Valley is home to many well-established, traditionally-farmed Zinfandel vineyards many of which were planted in the 1950's. A select few are represented in this bottling. The cool breezes and foggy mornings in the region enhance the spice elements inherent in the Zinfandel grape resulting in wines that display attractive racy fruit with a refined, exotic spice dimension.
XYZin 50 offers beautiful briar and pomegranate fruit at its core followed by waves of sandalwood, mocha, and a light whiff of pepper on the finish. The refined structure and polished spice are perfected through aging in French oak barrels and make the wine versatile enough to complement a variety of dishes.
Enjoy XYZin 50 with ginger-scented Thai curries, classic Brasserie fare, and glazed or braised meats. The wine will cellar elegantly but will be best enjoyed over the next 2 to 4 years.
