Mission Briefing

Codename:

Generations of Zin

When you think of California Zins, the Dry Creek Valley immediately springs to mind. For generations, this fertile valley has been the home to one exceptional wine after the other. Lou Preston, the proprietor behind today’s delicious Preston Family Vineyards 2012 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, has been there from the beginning, and has devoted the past four decades to producing the best possible wines from his estate vineyards.

Today’s wine is classically flavored, with loads of juicy red fruit and spice. If you consider yourself a Zin fan, then today’s wine is most definitely one to stock up on.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Scarlet red with an inky streak.

Smell:

Ripe dark berries are enveloped by aromatic notes of baking spices, summer berry bramble, black peppercorn, and cherry tobacco leaf.

Taste:

A truly classic Dry Creek Valley Zin, with plenty of ripe berry, richness, dusty earth spice. Blackberry and mulberry mingle with dried rose petal, sweet tobacco leaf, dried earth, black cherry, and peppercorn.

Finish:

Smooth and delicious. The vibrant flavors ask you to come back for more. Not over-ripe. A “session” style Zin.

Wood fired pizza, carnitas, lamb tacos, bbq chicken, ragu, a cheese plate, and so much more!
