Mission Briefing

Welcome Back!

Today’s Armida Winery 2012 Dry Creek Valley Poizin is a special wine in a crazy-cool package. This is Armida’s best-selling Zinfandel. For good reason, too. Today’s Poizin is a very balanced and very smooth wine, with enough complexity to make it interesting and delicious.

The wine shows great balance, with just the right amount of ripe fruit, earthiness and soft spice. Alcohol is subtle and not overpowering as in many a modern Dry Creek Valley Zin.

We are just thrilled to have Armida back on our pages and we hope that you are able to get your hands on some of this wonderful wine - before we run out.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Dark garnet while the wine sits still. Swirl it, and iridescent burgundy hues are viewed through the walls of the glass.

Smell:

Bold and lush, with notes of dark cherry, strawberry, and stewed fig leaping from the glass. Additional aromas of berry bramble, dried flower petals, sweet tobacco, and black peppercorn follow on.

Taste:

A delightful balance of reserved and powerful, with plenty of robust fruit notes of cherry, strawberry, and sweet plum counterbalanced by cedarwood, freshly picked spruce boughs, smoked beef carpaccio, sage, rosemary, and clove.

Finish:

The wine starts off dark, with a tartness that yields to sweeter flavors as the medium-long finish is sustained by the red fruits, minerals and peppercorn spice.

Pairing:

Garlic, rosemary, and black pepper rubbed venison, slow roasted and served with the baking juices drizzled overtop.
