Last night we held our "Winter Warmers" Crash Course at Downtown Wine & Spirits. After tasting through eight different wines, we put this week's Wine of the Weekend to a vote. In the end, the twenty attendees decided on the Four Vines Zinfandel.
We've always been a huge fan of the Four Vines Winery. With a rock and roll attitude and badass wines with names like Anarchy and the Heretic, these guys pump out some serious vino.
The 2006 Four Vines "Old Vine Cuvee" Zinfandel may be the least expensive red from this Paso Robles winery, but manages to kick ass and take names like its older siblings. This wine delivers rich, ripe fruit flavors, like blackberry and plum, without going overboard. Plus, at 14.6% alcohol, this bold wine is sure to chase away the winter blues.
Drink with BBQ Pork, a juicy steak or stash some in a flask for cold weather consumption.
