Wine of The Week

If this wine were a person, it would be big. Big like huge. I’m talking Biggest Loser Huge! Allow me to introduce Rombauer Zinfandel.

Now, before you get your panties or briefs in a bunch, let me clarify this Zinfandel is of the red variety. Please do not confuse this with White Zinfandel (a.k.a. that pink looking crap that your crazy aunt drinks). This is not that. No, far from it. This wine is a personal favorite. I vividly remember the first sip I had. It had to be at the Hollywood Vine in Hollywood, Florida. (One of my all time favorite wine and cheese shops. If you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by, ask for Luciano or Steve and tell them Candice sent you. I guarantee you a great time.) Back to the Rombauer, it is full-bodied, lush and fruit forward. It has a lovely black cherry aroma and tastes of dark berries that linger on the palate. It also has a great full texture to it.

Rombauer hails from Napa Valley, California. It retails around $30, making it one of the most expensive wines I drink regularly but, it is worth every penny. If you like a hearty red wine, this one is definitely a winner!
