Mission Briefing

Codename:

Like, whoa...

2013 continues to deliver some of the greatest California reds in a decade or more, and today’s Meadowcroft Wines 2013 Louvau Vineyard Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel is a brilliant example.

Today’s wine has the sort of nose that one dreams about in a Zinfandel, with equal measures of fresh fruit, earth and spice. On the palate, you’ll experience a level of juicy deliciousness that has become rare among the higher-alcohol Zins that seem to be the trend of late.

Now this is what a great Zin should smell like, with aromas of blackberry, spiced black cherry, dusty bramble, sweet baking spice, dark chocolate, black licorice, grilled Bing cherry and peppercorn.

Prepare your palate for a “Whoa!” moment, as flavors of blackberry juice, cherry preserve, raspberry, wild strawberry, sweet oak, sweet spice and subtle black pepper cascade across the palate.

This wine is yours for 42% off, which makes it a delectable, steal of a deal.
