Mission Codename Pedigreed
Today’s Watkins Family Winery 2008 Sonoma County Zinfandel comes from a winemaker with quite the storied past. Randall Watkins cut his teeth at big name wineries like Buena Vista Winery and Hartford Family Winery before launching his eponymous label. This pedigree shines through in today’s super delicious and super complex Zinfandel.
Today’s offering is a cut above the bombastic, fruit forward Zins you may be used to. Much more complex, with a level of balance we don’t always see in the varietal, this wine has a fantastic interplay between reduced fruit and terroir. Lying underneath these flavors is a subtle minerality that works to perfectly round out the flavor profile on this gem.
At over 30% off, we heartily recommend you stock up on today’s wine!
