Mission Briefing

Codename:

ZZ on Top

With its vivid bramble, spice, and high yum factor, Zig Zag typifies the best kind of Zinfandel. One that is undeniably delicious, so food friendly, and deceptively complex with volcanic white pepper dust inflections at its heart and soul. Lots of heady attractive red fruits (raspberry, strawberry, cherry) mixed together with the warm, dusty, spicy aromatics of Mendocino. At $13.99 a bottle, it’s a must buy for enthusiasts of California’s favorite homegrown red grape. An awesome Zinfandel!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Like a darker Pinot Noir. Crimson plum.

Smell:

Raspberry, bramble, white pepper, clove, dust, cocoa powder.

Taste:

Loads of berry infused with spicy tones. Delicious tasting. Full of fruit, but not out of balance.

Finish:

Smooth, juicy, exotic spices persist. So drinkable!

Pairing:

Extremely food friendly with lots of appeal for the simplest pleasures like pizza, burgers, bbq chicken.
