A Little Wine Talk

Something not about the election!

I got an email from Bonny Doon today telling me my favourite wine is now available for 2002.

"2002 is a full-bodied zinfandel, with berries-on-steroids flavor. Free of psychedelics."

No kidding though, this wine is awesome!

An '02 is a bit young, though, wouldn't you say? I mean, I know zinfandels are OK to drink sooner than other reds (well, merlots are probably about the same but I don't think about them because I hate merlot), but you might still want to hold off on this for a year or so. I'm sure Cardinal Zin must have an '01 to tide you over.

(And yes, before you say so, I'm a snob.)

Actually, I'm partial to the 2000 :)

It was mostly an opportunity to plug my fave wine! and the label, which I love.

Wine snob is good.

Mmmmmmmmm... Cardinal Zin...

Mmmmmmmmm...

Strangely enough, even though I have a massive sweet tooth, my favorite wine is Red Zinfandel.

Label looks like Ralph Steadman's work.
