2009 Four Vines Old Vine Cuvee Zinfandel
Grilling a couple of pizzas tonight and opened up a nice Zin to help inspire the topping choices. This one is a 2009 Four Vines Zinfandel, specifically the Old Vines Cuvee. According to the propoganda on the label "Old vines lend depth and character to layers of silky berry fruit and spice." Hmm - yep getting both of those - this one seems very fresh with none of the prune character that I expect in Old Vine Zins - interesting, but tasty! Love the slogan on the back label and on the cork - "Living in Zin". Got this one at just under $10 - a bargain if you ask me.
Here's some propoganda from the Four Vines website ------ Four Vines
And their Facebook page ---- Four Vines Facebook
A nice article of the wine ----- Blog Your Wine
Had a great time at a local record swap this morning - picked up a nice vintage 45 carrier - a "Platter-Pak" and proceeded to fill it up with Sweet UK 45s. Yep -thats Wig Wam Bam and Action.
