Just a quick update and new recipe item for those interesting in pairing my 2017 Zinfandel. The 2017 Zinfandel, Lencioni Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley is dry farmed with a ton of blackberry fruit all over this wine, which is typical considering the location and the wild blackberries that grow everywhere. 2017 was a hot year, but we got the fruit off in the first couple days of September, so I'm not getting any cooked or raisin fruit flavors, but a lot of ripe black fruit. BBQ will be your friend here. Grilled meats would be a second choice, lamb to pork and everything in between. Certain types of complex sauces like mole’ and Hoisin will work well.
