Hey – Happy First Wednesday of 2013!
Today we get one step closer to our goal of drinking our way through all the Zinfandels in the store.* Over the last holiday weekend** we tried The County Fair’s One Man Band Zinfandel from Sonoma, CA and…we’re not really that impressed.
Which is interesting because all the other reviews I’ve been skimming online really liked this bottle. We thought it was unremarkable. It’s not terrible, but it didn’t have any strong fruit, it was kind of “thin” and it wasn’t particularly spicy in the way that most Zinfandels we’ve tried have been (and we like that spice!). It’s also a little “hot” – L said he could taste a distinct alcohol flavor.
It’s not dirt cheap at $8,99, so our general consensus is skip this one in favor of one of the $5.99 or less bottles that are better. Unless you can’t get over the label. The packaging is pretty cute!
Until next Wednesday!
