WINGNUT ZINFANDEL 2006
The Grade: OUTSTANDING. The Mojo: The Wingnut Zinfandel 2006 is the latest release from Rebel Wine Co. (aka Three Thieves). This medium-bodied Zin is full of brambly red and black berry flavors, alongside chocolate, black pepper, mocha, with medium tannins and a slightly sweet fruit finish. Many thanks to my former assistant wine buyer and current SWS/Crane sales rep Jesse Stambaugh for bringing this by. We here at LD are always on the lookout for a great-drinking Zin that doesn't break the bank, and this one delivers. Give it a go!
