Well, tonite is New Year's Eve - a couple of red wine lovin' friends are on their way over and I've planned a contest to spring on 'em.
Yes, it is time for the Forchini Challenge.
2 bottles of Zinfandel produced from grapes sourced from the same vineyard.
2 different winemaking styles.
What wine will emerge triumphant?
2007 Folie A Deux Forchini Vineyard Zinfandel
2006 Forchini Vineyards and Winery Proprietor's Reserve Zinfandel
The Rules - a blind tasting will be conducted later this evening - preferences will be tallied and the results will be up on New year's Day (yeah - I know- the suspense is killin' YA!)
Have a great New Years's Eve!
Update - it's a tie - 3 votes for the Folie A Deux and 3 for the Forchini
I voted for the Forchini - classic old world style Zin.
Happy New Year's Day!
