Mission Briefing

Codename:

A Major Zin

Today’s Hughes Family Vineyards 2008 Sonoma Valley Signature Reserve Zinfandel is a wine that our entire tasting panel fell for. If you like big Zins, then we bet you will, too.

The Hughes Family Vineyards are nestled in the foothills above Glen Ellen, California, and are tended with a commitment to the best organic practices. This quality and attention to detail is clearly reflected in today’s Zin. While big in flavor, you can also pick out some subtle nuances that come only from expert winemaking and the finest vineyard sources.

Today’s wine won the Best of the Bay Zin Competition, and is available today only for over 20% off. Enjoy!

Tasting Profile

Look:

A deep, dark foreboding crimson from heart to edge.

Smell:

Plush, almost voluptuous, aromas abound in today’s wine. Ripe black cherry and black raspberry provide a fruity foundation for notes of sweet tobacco leaf, smoky cherry wood, black peppercorn, summer earth, and soft baker’s chocolate.

Taste:

A big Zin, with tons of fruit and spicy goodness. Lush hints of a black cherry, blackberry, and wild strawberry compote mingle with toasty sandalwood, cocoa powder, freshly ground black peppercorn, clove, anise, and fresh summer berry bramble.

Finish:

Well structured, with a weighty mouthfeel and oh-so delicious flavors. The dark berry compote flavors will stay with you long after you set your glass down.

Pairing:

Short ribs, prepared with a Provençal herbal rub, then slowly braised in a dry red wine. Be sure to serve them on a bed of creamy mashed potatoes.
