My mom brought this wine to our Thanksgiving dinner at the beach last week and I basically snagged it for myself. I hadn't had a good Zinfandel in a while so I thought this would do the trick. It's not a pricey wine (think under $16) but it is a pretty great California red. I try to drink California reds as much as possible, because buy American? This 94 point wine has an aroma of black fruit, mocha, vanilla and spice. It's got a tiny bit of kick to it, making it a great sipping wine. And, I mean, the label is cute so, win/win! I would definitely pick up another bottle of this next time I am craving a Zin!
