Mission Briefing


THIS is Zinfandel

Today’s 2011 Reserve Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is an absolute treat - an incredibly delicious and well-rounded treat. Our friends at XYZin Wines know their Zins, and today’s wine is definitive proof of their expertise.

Today’s Zin comes from the western valley floor of the Dry Creek Valley, which is one of the premier growing locations for the varietal. The dry-farmed and head-trained vines, many of which are over 100 years old, produce very low yields of deeply flavored and unique grapes, which shine through in today’s outstanding Zinfandel.

Looking for a wine to pair with your upcoming summer BBQ’s? We highly recommend today’s wallet friendly gem!

Tasting Profile


Ruby red through and through, with flecks of a lovely darker magenta in the center of the glass.


Lovely aromatics of sweet red fruit, highlighted by dark cherry and wild strawberry, leap from the glass. These are quickly trailed by hints of sandalwood, warm baking spices, black peppercorn, and hints of violet and other dried flower petals.


Rich, luscious, and everything you love in a Zinfandel. Juicy fruit flavors of cherry, raspberry, and boysenberry are framed by notes of cedar wood, subtle sweet tobacco leaf, clove, anise, black peppercorn, and a touch of cranberry tartness.


A truly impressive wine: incredibly well rounded with each flavor element in perfect balance. The juicy fruit flavors linger through the finish, with a hint of dark spice remaining on the very tip of your tongue.


A perfect companion to Southern pulled pork, slow roasted and served with a tangy sauce slathered overtop.
