2010 T-Vine Stonebridge Zinfandel

2010stonebridgezinfandelI made my first purchases from the flash site lastbottlewines.com a few weeks ago, picking up a few T-Vine stonebridge zinfandels and the 2009 T-Vine Paras Vineyard Grenache.

Each were heavily discounted down to $20 a bottle, and I bought into the story and took a leap. Both are pleasant, if not sensational. The grenache tastes a bit sweet and simple right now, but we’ll give it some time and see what happens.

I’m a fan of the zinfandel at the $20 price, as it somehow manages to not be overly oaky despite being aged largely in new american oak. It’s relatively light despite its 15% alcohol, and tastes like it could age for awhile. Always happy to have a few more bottles of quality Zin and I like this raspberry dominant one a lot.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
