Mile High's "Wine of the Week": May 23rd
XYZin Reserve Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2015
With the big Memorial Day weekend on the horizon we know that you’ve got a bunch of grilling and chilling in the queue. So tonight we’re going to pour the XYZin Reserve Zinfandel at the tasting bar so that you can audition it for your go-to Red for the baby back ribs, black & bleu burgers, and red chili that you’re going to be serving once the sun pops back out this weekend. This bottle is rocking good! It is bold, no doubt about it. Give it a swirl and a good deep sniff to reveal a heady perfume of cinnamon sticks and freshly pitted cherries simmering gently in brandy. Don’t sip it yet tho...

The barleywine debuted in 2008 as part of the Paso Robles, Calif.-based brewery’s Proprietor’s Vintage Series but was replaced in the brewery’s schedule in 2017 by Bravo barrel-aged imperial brown ale, only to return last year.
