I have lately fallen in love with old vine zinfandel. My torrid affair with old vine zin began while vacationing on Martha’s Vineyard with my second family and closest friend since we were three years old. We had a few different old vine zins and I didn’t find one I wouldn’t have kept drinking until I reached the bottom.
Tonight’s OZV is another delicious old vine zin that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s dry and smokey and fruity and you just want to keep on sipping it. It’s as good with food as it is just on its own. Let it breathe a little and you won’t regret the wait. It blossoms after it gets a little oxygen and it is even good the second day (just be sure to store it in the fridge).
If you like a dry wine with smokey tones, you will probably like this wine. If you lean toward the sweeter wines this is probably not for you.
