Dear Wine Lover,
I want to show you something. As my job is to bring classic examples of wines of the world that are true to their region and grape…nowhere does it say in my job description I have to do is at such a low price. But I'm the boss and I get to decide
Lodi has long been the great California appellation for Zinfandel, the cool nights there seem to bring out the grapes character. The deep loam soil seems to impart all it has with the Zinfandel grape. This accurate example is loaded with dried fruit and spice and carries well into the finish. Serve at room temperature with a standing roast or spaghetti and meat balls.
Some of the hottest wines going RIGHT NOW are red and white still wines from Portugal. Though Portugal is known for its fortified namesake, Port, the still wines made from the same grapes are gaining popularity. Typically deep and color and texture, these wines mystify wine enthusiasts the first time they taste them…because they are so good! This example is true to its color and character. Deep spice and weighty on the palate.
