It’s been awhile since a shameless product plug but the other night  I had the very real pleasure of a 2006 Montevina Amador County Zinfandel. I’d backed off zins in the past couple of decades. Seemed that they were being finished as a heavy cabernet or alternatively, something for a picnic or wine cooler. This was lovely. Sort of Zin I thought I remembered from the sixties. The bad news (for the winery) is that I usually purchase at the very low end of the price range. Like the 3.99 closeouts. You can bet I’ll be watching the shelves for Montevina in the future.
