I have been so lax in writing about all of the wine I’ve been drinking. I didn’t stop drinking I just got lazy. My apologies, I will try and do better.
I feel live the Man of La Mancha sometimes, doing battle with windmills. Only my windmill is finding the perfect Zinfandel. Sadly my quest continues.
I found a bottle of BR Cohn Zinfandel and bought it, because every bottle of BR Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon I’ve had has always been very good. So when I saw that BR Cohn also makes a Zinfandel, I thought I would give it a try. It was a 2010 vintage with 15.2% alcohol and from Sonoma Valley, California. It was a bit pricey, $30 a bottle, I wasn’t going to get it because of the price, but Mitch being the pusher, said go ahead, what do you have to lose. So I did.
It was a dark red in the glass, with a slight cherry aroma when I stuck my nose in the glass. It was dry, astringent and had a dry full finish. Not the big jammie Zinfandel I’m looking for. It was drinkable and okay for a wine, just not The One.
So my quest continues, maybe one day. Until then I have a lot more windmills to battle with.
