Winemaker's Notes:

Bright ruby in color with an inviting bouquet of luscious fruit and spice this vintage of XYZin 10 follows in the footsteps of its predecessors showing the interplay of ripe jammy fruit, lively tartness, and briar notes. A succulent texture and medium weight make this a great sipping wine and the firm tannins on the finish will make it a cheerful companion to peppercrusted ahi or steak. An incredibly versatile wine as it alternately shows dominant fruit, spice, or earth notes. Try pairing this wine with dessert as well to observe how the wine changes when in the company of savory or sweet foods. Enjoy best over the next three years.

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.
