ZINFANDEL PAIRING

Zinfandel goes with just about everything Americans love to eat—ribs, pizzas, burgers, chili, pastas—and with moderately spicy foods.A true California original, Zinfandel goes with just about everything Americans love to eat!




California Girl


For a classic California experience, try Zin with a grilled burger topped with Monterey Jack cheese! It's also a good pair with ethnic cuisines, particularly moderately spicy Mexican meat dishes and tandoori chicken or lamb

White Zinfandel


White Zinfandel, on the other hand, is actually a white wine made from red Zinfandel grapes. The juice of all wine grapes is actually "white." Red wines get their color by spending time soaking with their pigment-giving skins. The juice that makes White Zinfandel has simply been removed from the skins directly after the grapes were pressed. 
A zany shape-shifter, Zinfandel grapes produce wines that play across the spectrum, from fruity reds with acidic zip to big, tannic monsters loaded with spice.

Try lighter, lower alcohol versions with gently spicy foods and bigger, more tannic Zinfandels with foods like grilled beef.

Aromas:
Wild berries, raspberry, plum, pepper, bramble, earthy smells.


I even dig mine with Cheetos'....GO CHESTER!!!




ENJOY!.
