Going for Gold
Today’s Munselle Vineyards 2010 Alexander Valley Zinfandel is a fantastically delicious and well rounded Zinfandel. After all was said and done, our most recent tasting panel simply could not get enough of this gem!
An absolutely perfect combination of plush red fruit and elegant structure, this Zin hit all the right notes with our panel. Of particular note was the finish, which had a pleasantly surprising touch of subtle smokiness that lingers on the tip of the tongue. That little touch took this wine from delicious to another level entirely. And, dear Operative, if you pair this wine with food, holy cow, you are in for a treat!
This Gold Medal winner is available today only for an astounding $19.99. We strongly recommend you stock up!
Deep crimson through and through, nearly opaque at the center of the glass, transitioning into a lighter red at the very edge.
Aromatic, with big, bold red fruit notes paired with sweet plum, fresh berry bramble, nutmeg, black peppercorn, and a touch of sage and rosemary.
Plush and savory on the palate, with deep notes of fresh blackberry and raspberry laid overtop hints of plum, briar patch, sweet tobacco leaf, well oiled leather, black peppercorn, clove, and a subtle rosemary.
Juicy and lush with just enough structure and grippy tannin to take this wine to another level, the finish is highlighted by a lovely touch of smoke that lingers on the tip of the tongue.
Homemade meatball sandwich on freshly baked sourdough, with melted provolone and tangy marinara sauce.
