Wine of the month: Zinfandel

Why Zinfandel should be your summertime wine of choice!

When it comes to summer drinks, it’s easy to neglect the wine section. Sure, frozen margs, daiquiris, and sangria hold a refreshing place in our hearts, but that is no reason to say goodbye to the wine aisle during the warmer months. Zinfandel in particular is a delicious choice to pair with dinner or even snacks as temps heat up! Did you know that Zinfandel is the perfect cookout wine? It’s true!

This California wine boasts a distinctively fruity smell combined with the vibrant taste of berries. Some varieties of Zin are even described as being “jammy” in flavor with a slight spice. The unique taste of a Zinfandel makes it perfectly suited for pairing with a variety of meats.

The sky’s the limit when it comes to pairing Zin and your favorite cuts of meats. A glass of zinfandel pairs perfectly with:40119642_s
