    Give It A Shot - Oak Ridge Winery OZV Lodi Zinfandel 2016

    We know what you are thinking. You just watched a new video from us yesterday so how could there possibly be another one available already? Here at About Beverages we are dedicated not only to beverages, but more importantly, to you, our loyal followers and listeners. With that in mind, we are happy to offer you the final installment in our series of beverages that we feel could be featured at your Thanksgiving dinner. This podcast features a wine, and a varietal that is not the first to come to mind when one thinks of Thanksgiving; Zinfandel. Over the years, this grape has made several appearances at our holiday table and has been quite successful. Hopefully this particular wine will carry that tradition forward. The wine that we will be trying is the Oak Ridge Winery OZV old vine Zinfandel from Lodi. We feel the best Zinfandels offer both fruit and spice for an overall balanced flavor profile.  What did we think? What do you think?  Let us know in the comments below or join us live on Thursday nights to give us your feedback while we are live streaming on Twitch.

    Give It A Shot - Sebastiani 2012 Zinfandel

    What's better than finding a delicious Zinfandel?  Finding one at a good price of course!  Today at the tasting table we will be uncorking the 2012 Sebastiani Zinfandel.  Sonoma County is well known as one of the finest regions in the US for this particular grape, but that type of quality usually comes at a cost.  This particular bottle is priced around $17 depending on where you shop. That may be a fair, we'll find out soon enough, but thanks to our local Trader Joe's our cost was only $9.  Time to taste and discover if the right balance of fruit and spice we look for in a Zin has been achieved  or if this one should have stayed on the vine.  If you have any ideas for future episodes of "Give It A Shot" or just have a question, you can always send us an email to AboutBeverages@q.com.
