Everyday Wine Guy's predecessor was so much better...
Too bad there's no rudeness filter in this forum.
Good commentary, Wine Guy. Yes, and mean people suck.
As you likely remember, Vince, as host of CDSI Info address, is also a wine grape grower and wine manufacturer. Over recent years, we have compared Zinfandel grapes from the primary regions of Lytton Springs/Healdsburg, Plymouth/Amador County, and Paso Robles. Vince has made Zin's from each region and blends of such regions.
The nature of Zinfandel is unique because it can have various structures depending on the tastes of customers. Generally, the softer, deeply rich "berry" Zins are the most popular and Rancho Zabaco is a good example. Some like the earthier Zins that have aged to a dry, somewhat peppery taste.
In Spain early this month, I was served a red wine that is taken from grapes that are relatives of Zinfandel. The subdued berry finish and crisp, dry richness of the wine was exceptional.
Most uniquely, Vince recently made a true white Zinfandel that has the full, dry crispness of a red Zin with the structure of an Albrino or Pinot Grigio. This planned offering by Trader Joe's for the holidays will be a treat for our local tables and bring a further definition to Zinfandel.
