Zin me once, Zin me twice, Just Zin me!!April 26, 2017

2014 has been dubbed “Year of the Zin” 

Zinfandel is a California classic grape, once thought to indigenous to Cali its now know to be from southern Italy called Primitivo. Originally from Croatia this grape loves the HOT and thrives in southern Italy, near the heel of the country, and in the hottest parts of Sonoma, and Paso Robles, and Napa. Sometimes overly fruity, Zin needs good Balance, and some peppery notes to get the full vibe of the grape. Primitivo is a always cheaper than most Zins and definitely worth trying. My fav Zins from California would be Grgitch Hills Zin, one of the few Napa Zins great earth makes great wine. Since Napa is more Cabernet country few Zins grow there. In Sonoma Ridge has several Zin blends that are incredible, seriously don’t miss out Zin wines are crowd pleasers too.http://grgitch.com http://ridgewine.com
