Zen of Zin
What Possessed Us To Open Wine?
Dinner at friends who love us so much they made a low-carb dinner for us. This was a completely “zen” situation.
What Did The Label Want Us To Know?
Around the capsule it says: "The Way To Zinlightenment" which is a good start to wine. It also claims to be old vine. On the back it explains the way to zinlightenment with suggestions on why and how to serve it: with friends, with beef, chicken, pork and chocolate, with laughter, etc.
It also mentions smelling it and noticing vanilla, plum and coffee. It says you might also taste chocolate, toffee and blackberry jam.
What’s So Great About It?
I could have just smelled it all night. Well, almost. Eventually have to drink it!! Enne said it was full but not heavy. David said yummy and medium full-bodied. I thought it was delightful and for the price...unbelievable.
Someone Else’s More Qualified Opinion:
Conversation This Wine Engendered:
The real “zen”
