Along with all the wine I picked up this Christmas, I also picked up a cold that has made swallowing uncomfortable and left my taste buds in ruins. Since I won't let it keep me from blogging, I am posting a wine review from a few weeks ago. I typically don't go into wine stores looking for California wines, but on this occasion I just wanted a decent wine to compliment my dinner. Nothing fancy or expensive. just an easy drinking wine that I can trust. I choose a Zinfandel for only $9.
Overall a well balanced Zinfandel. Strawberry nose with juicy red fruits on the palate. More light bodied than most I've tried in the past with a soft lingering spice on the finish. Good wine for the price. My grade: B
