Mission Briefing

Codename:

Presto, Preston!

Today’s Preston Vineyards 2013 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is one juicy, rich, mouth-filling, food-friendly blockbuster of a wine that our entire tasting panel went gaga over. Quantity is limited, so please consider yourself warned…

This wine will likely sell out before days end.

Preston has been making wines in the Dry Creek Valley (the undisputed birthplace of the best California Zins) since the early 1970s. Theirs is a family business with a ton of heart and soul. And a great winemaking team, too!

Today’s wine is vibrant and very fragrant on the nose, with bold Blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, Alpine strawberry, mixed spice, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, bramble and black pepper.

Delicious and full on the palate, with juicy blackberry, black cherry, bramble, red currant, cranberry, toasty oak, vanilla, sweet tobacco and cracked pepper.

This wine is very highly recommended… and very limited.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep purple, with a slightly opaque heart and pretty ruby edges.

Smell:

Blackberry, black cherry, raspberry, Alpine strawberry, mixed spice, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, bramble and black pepper.

Taste:

Blackberry, black cherry, bramble, red currant, cranberry, toasty oak, vanilla, sweet tobacco and cracked pepper.

Finish:

Extra long, with all flavors tailing off slowly - and in perfectly even proportion. After a while, a gradual dryness spreads to the far corners of the palate.

Pairing:

Enjoy this rich and juicy Zin with your favorite grilled meats. How about a juicy Porterhouse?!
