Mission Codename Digging Deeper
Today’s 2010 J Doran Zinfandel is a big, bold and juicy wine that hails from the sometimes overlooked Contra Costa AVA (American Viticultural Appellation). This region is rife with old vine wines, including some of the richest and most extracted Zins we’ve come across. Perhaps wines from Contra Costa are so good because the vines have to fight so hard to find water, digging deeper into the soils than their Sonoma County cousins.
Today’s wine has a big nose. One that matches perfectly with the palate; the wine bursts with layers of rich aromas and concentrated flavors. This wine is a real BBQ wine and with Springtime upon us - and summer just around the corner - we’ll be stocking up on this very budget-friendly wine from our good friend, Chris Doran.
