Mission Codename All Hail King Cowabunga
Celebrate with us! Today marks the 50th time that we’ve featured a Random Ridge wine, and the 5th successive time that we’ve featured a new vintage of their Old Wave Zinfandel. Today’s 2013 vintage is winemaker Bill Hawley’s finest vintage yet and we can’t recommend it highly enough.
Today’s Random Ridge 2013 Random Ridge Old Wave Sonoma County Zinfandel is a juicy and beautifully balanced wine with aromas and flavors that thrill and delight.
This wine is a gorgeous dark ruby red with a translucent and darker core, with lighter ruby edges. After a good swirl, the wine coats the glass, leaving behind a sheet of color that gradually coalesces into a cascade of closely-spaced tears that move very slowly down the glass.
Lush and very fragrant on the nose, with layers of aromas, including jammy bold blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, red currant, sweet cigar box, sweet spice, vanilla, cocoa and dusty bramble.
Juicy and so very delicious on the palate, with flavors of black cherry, plum, blackberry, braised mission fig, cassis, dark tobacco leaf, toasty oak, sweet spice and black pepper.
We offer you this balanced, delicious and elegant wine with our very heartiest recommendation. Get some, and catch the wave!
