Deep Purple

Ok, I'm on a roll, my second blog... tonight I want to talk about a good wine. Deep Purple, not the 70's heavy metal band... you know the tune that everyone can mimic. This is the Lodi Zinfandel 2009 from California. I love the psychedelic label and honestly the name made me buy it the first time a few years ago. Lodi in Polish means ice cream, and I love ice cream almost as much as I love wine.

This is what has to say about it ... "Scents of blackberry, black cherry, and plum with a touch of black pepper and clove. Jammy fruit from entry through mid-palate, finishing with wild berries and a dusting of cocoa."
and they say it goes with everything... PAIRING: Zinfandelicious with braised short ribs, lamb burgers, cassoulet, spaghetti & meatballs, country-style pork ribs
alcohol by volume: 13.0%  Zinfandelicious! wow, its so good it has its own word. I tried it and it has become a favorite of mine in my price range, around $10. I highly recommend this wine…

too much??
