Well hello Wednesday!
Man do we love our Zinfandel. Really truly. Looking back on the previous WW posts, almost all the Zins have been winners.
This week’s contender is right up there with the best of them. A great value at $4.99, the Old Moon is a very smooth, peppery wine that would make another wonderful everyday wine. There is a little sparkle up front, with some nice fruity flavor, but the wine is not hot – there is no alcohol taste. If we could find any complaint for this bottle, it would just be that it’s a little hollow – because there is no real heat, no heavy tannins, nothing really bold or brash at the beginning or end. But the wine isn’t flat or boring. It’s just really, really smooth.
Let the Zinfandel love continue! Unlike last week’s wine, this one is on the shelves quite a bit, so if you don’t have a chance to enjoy it for the end of the year holidays, New Year is just around the corner…
Until next Wednesday!
