Happy New Year's Eve from Red Red Wine On A Sunday - The Forchini Challenge is tonite!

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?

The Contestants:

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!
