Zinner as in zinfandel.
Sorry for the bad pun, but I can’t help it sometimes.
Also sorry that I didn’t post a Wine of the Week last week. I think you’ll be happy when you realize that this week’s choice is worth the wait.
I was treated last week to a glass of Napa Cellars Zinfandel and I really don’t want anything else right now. I probably never would have tried it because it was one of the more expensive options on the list at a local wine bar, but am so so happy I did. After having this zin and then comparing it to a less pricey option later that night…it was like crème brûlée vs. Jell-O. Except in this case, you would want to be the crème brûlée! (My Best Friend’s Wedding, anyone?)
Anyway, this wine is so spicy, bold, a little heavy, and absolutely delicious.
The best news? It averages between $15 – $16 in retail stores! Win win! I can already forsee buying this for certain friends and family members’ birthday presents. I may need to buy stock in Total Wine & More now.
