The Russian River Valley is home to many well-established,
traditionally-farmed Zinfandel vineyards many of which were planted
in the 1950's. A select few are represented in this bottling. The cool
breezes and foggy mornings in the region enhance the spice elements
inherent in the Zinfandel grape resulting in wines that display attractive
racy fruit with a refined, exotic spice dimension. XYZin 50 offers
beautiful briar and pomegranate fruit at its core followed by waves of
sandalwood, mocha, and a light whiff of pepper on the finish. The
refined structure and polished spice are perfected through aging in

classic Brasserie fare, and glazed or braised meats. The wine will cellar
elegantly but will be best enjoyed over the next 2 to 4 years.

We believe the age of a vine is as much a part of a wine’s makeup as climate, soil and clone selection, and each wine reflects the physical age of its vine, as well as the techniques and traditions of generations of farmers.
