Mission Briefing

Codename:

Owl always love Zin

With so many wines offered to us each and every day, we can afford to be exceedingly careful - and extraordinarily picky - when it comes to selecting which wines we feature for you. We are so picky that we reject about one third of the wines that we review.

Big brand, award-winning wines certainly get our attention, but when a lesser-known brand finds its way to our tasting panel, we approach it with an excited open mind - and palate. Today’s Wise Villa Winery 2011 California Estate Zinfandel turned out to be… fantastic!

This delicious wine, which has earned numerous accolades, is a Zinfandel that is well worthy of your attention. We offer this wonderful wine to you with our hearty recommendation

Tasting Profile

Look:

A beautiful purple through and through, just slightly translucent, with just a hint of a lighter, rustic red rim.

Smell:

Leads with juicy red fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry, laid atop notes of sweet cedar wood, aged leather, berry bramble, black peppercorn spice, and warm baking spices.

Taste:

Delicious and very drinkable, with a flavor profile that is very similar to the nose, this wine is exactly what you want from a traditional Zinfandel. The red fruit, earth, and spice are very well balanced.

Finish:

A lovely balance of tannin and structure, with the concentrated red fruit slowly transitioning into slight pepper notes on the back of the palate.

Pairing:

A slow roasted garlic and rosemary encrusted beef brisket, served with plenty of root vegetables.
