2009 Pretense Paso Robles Zinfandel

A bright sunny, but crisp and cold afternoon here at the Pinhead Compound.  Not to worry, I have a wonderful Zinfandel cracked open to keep me warm.  This one comes from the Paso Robles area  (a bit inland from San Luis Obispo and halfway between the world famous Monterey / Carmel area and Santa Barbara).  This area grows some great wine grapes, most notably Zinfandel, Syrah and Merlot.  This one comes in a 14.0% alcohol and has just a trace of residual sugar.  Berry goodness and some nice spices round out this one.  Highly recommended.

Here's some Propoganda from the winery ------- 3 Finger

  PS - hit some record stores down on the Haight in San Francisco.  Yes - Vinyl is alive and kicking on the left coast!
