Hello again Wine Wednesday!
I’ve been missing the blog and as I explained in the last post, there isn’t a whole lot of baking going on around here.* So naturally, it’s time for the return of Wine Wednesday!
This week we tried a Zinfandel from Cline. Overall, a definite winner. It had the usual fruitiness of Zinfandel with some raspberry and blueberry notes. This isn’t a heavy or syrupy wine, but it’s still got some heft to it – I believe the pros would call that “balance.”** It was also very smooth – not a lot of heat to it and not overly tannin-y, but far from flat or boring.
And this one has a nice price. It’s going for $7.99 at Trader Joe’s. Not bargain-basement by our standards, but a very respectable bottle to bring to a party and put out in the front row of the beverage table.
Until next Wednesday!
