A Zin for a Snowed-in Day
Well we didn't make it out of Keystone today - roughly five inches of snow making the interstates a mess - so opening up a 2012 Gary Farrell Russian River Zin. Definitely a peppery flavor but very drinkable. Unlike the 2011 Joseph Phelps Syrah I opened last night - poured it right out - wasn't corked but I didn't like the flavor of their Syrah. First bottle in the 27 that I have opened this year that I pretty much poured down the drain.
BTW it is St Patty's Day and March Madness also started. Cheers!
