Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About XYZin:

XYZin is a premium Zinfandel producer that explores the effects of vine age on the structure and style of Zinfandel wines. Each of our three wines is an expression of the time and place the vines were planted, and come from Zinfandel vines at least 10, 50 or 100 years of age at the time of harvest. 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.
