2006 Renwood Old Vin Zinfandel

A Beautiful afternoon here at the Pinhead Studios. Got some Irish Stew bubbling away on the stove and I've cracked open the Zin - a 2006 Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel to be exact.

15% alcohol and lotsa fully ripened fruit in this one. Love me some Zin! Here's some more info from the Renwood website -

The 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel is comprised of the best selection of Old Vine vineyard lots in the Shenandoah Valley, each adding its own nuance and complexity to the final blend. The 2006 Old Vine Zinfandel is a lovely ruby color. The terrior of Amador produces grapes that have aromas that are reminiscent of holiday spices, white pepper and cedar. The flavor has ripe fruit with a background of nutmeg and mace. The tannins are chalky, giving the wine a good structure. Aging in new American Oak lends a note of vanilla and a hint of coffee bean to round out the mélange of flavors.

Headed over to a local record swap this morning and found a treasure - the Pinball Summer soundtrack from 1980. Pinball Summer is a classic cheese filled summer movie that was made for the Canadian market. You can still find the movie on DVD, but it has been renamed Pick-up Summer. The album lists a couple of covers (Do Ya Wanna Dance and Evil Woman) but the rest are originals. There is even a "Pinball Summer" song - wonder if it has any vocals? Could it be on the next Red Red Wine On A Sunday Pinball episode - maybe - I'll be spinning it this evening.
Also picked up a nice stack of 45's - see below
