Mission Briefing

Codename:

All Hail King Rudy

From 100 point winemaker Rudy von Strasser comes a budget-friendly wine from his namesake Rudy label. Von Strasser’s Rudy wines are perfect for anyone looking for great value in a low-priced wine. Fans of Rudy’s more expensive wines will also delight in this terrific sister label.

Youthful and bright, with plenty of character, today’s 2012 Rudy Napa Valley Zinfandel is an energetic, vibrant wine that we’ll be stocking our spy cellars with. A Rudy von Strasser wine for under $20 is almost unheard of, and we are recommending that you also stock up.

Enjoy now, but be sure to hold onto a few bottles for the next year or two as this wine will only continue to improve with a little bottle aging. Decant for best results.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark ruby red hues with deep, even coloration from the heart of the wine out to the edge of the glass.

Smell:

Blackberry compote, bramble, plum, sweet tobacco leaf, candied black cherry and subtle sweetwood sit atop hints of coffee bean, sweet spice, oak and fall leaves.

Taste:

Soft and lush on entry with plump plum at first. Close behind, fresh raspberry, pomegranate, cranberry and brown spice follow on.

Finish:

Medium long, with dark fruits that fade to earth and spice characteristics. Black pepper makes a brief appearance at the very end.

Pairing:

Can you think of anything better with a bright Rudy Zinfandel than a deluxe burger with sweet potato fries? We can’t!
