Mission Codename Extravaganzin
Another vintage, another stunning wine - today marks the return of Bradford Mountain Winery and their exceptional Grist Vineyard Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel.
We’ve tasted three successive vintages of this wine, and the 2012 vintage might be the best one yet. Our tasting panel was over the moon for this wine, with its layers of lush dark fruit and woodsy, toasted spice. One panel member suggested pairing today’s wine with slowly smoked BBQ ribs, and Agent Red nearly leaped to find the nearest grill.
We highly recommend today’s gem from one of the best Zinfandel fruit sources in the world. Don’t miss out!
