(From 2013 Vintage) Sonoma is the real stronghold of high quality Zinfandel in California and our vineyard sources range from valley floor to hillside locations. The various elevations contribute layers of complexity to the final blend and showcase the versatility and chameleon-like qualities of this special grape. Nearly all of the vineyards used in this blend are trained to traditional trellis systems allowing for a narrow fruiting zone and good exposure of the fruit to the sunlight and wind, both of which help us to gain maturity.
(From 2009 Vintage) 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.
