Staff Wine Review – GoodCheapBooze.com

Good Booze. Fun Jammy Zin.

Fun Zins at great prices are a treat. This bargain from one of the great old winery families in Sonoma County is a “pour and enjoy”. Aeration doesn’t add much here and takes some stuff away. Put a slight chill on it (20 minutes in the fridge) and enjoy it. Not a big, complex, seductive Zin, but a fun, tasty red wine with lots of jammy berries. BBQ party time. How about some ribs and sauce?
