Hotshot old world funk and charm crawling straight out of the El Camino Real mission system in a hipster setting so California sunshine, so California snow, so California surf, so California foothill and green valley all rolled up into one Prius straight down The 101. Beautiful Zin plump and pepper zest for life–which wouldn’t spell Zinfandel without–coats the mouth in a thin vibrant varnish as acid curls the edges and presumptuous dense purple youth and a wave of briar props up the infallibility and recklessness Zinfandel always manages to do with sweetness in the absence of it. Do you like Zinfandel? Good classic low-alcohol Zin that’s not a disgusting jelly-bomb? Did I mention this is a 20-25 dollar bottle of wine?
