My Latest Favorite
A wonderful perk of living in the Napa Valley includes getting my hands on some delicious wines that many across the country may not ever discover. So, I'm going to give some recommendations every now and again. Consider it akin to insider information.
I've been loving this 2004 Zinfandel lately called Blockheadia Ringnosii. It's 100% Zinfandel made with Sonoma fruit. It's not one of those spicy zinfandels that can be so common with a 100% single varietal. It has some nice ripe blackberry flavors, mellow tannins and a nice, smooth finish. Salut!
