Ruby red in color with the sheen of a tree-ripe cherry our XYZin 10 promises
to the eye what it delivers on the palate. A gracious wine, it opens with an
attractive aroma of rose petals, juicy pomegranate, and warm brown sugar.
Strawberry, and plum fruit dominate the entry and lead to a plush mid-palate
redolent of dark cherries and mulberries complemented by earthy dimensions
of sandalwood, fresh bay leaf, and chocolate. The bright fruit and soft texture
of this wine will be best enjoyed in the first four years after release while the
vivid qualities of our young vines are most apparent. Zinfandel complements a
wide range of cuisines and this bottling pairs beautifully with tomato-based
sauces and the tangy/savory flavors of Southeast Asia dishes.
