And finally there is Zin. I don't know what it is about Zin that ellicits such reactions from consumers, but when I write about Zin I almost always get a tremendous response. Though, reactions are normally along the line of my being a moron for not preferring or writing about the reader's favorite wines.
Here we have a somewhat predictable line-up, lots of solid wine here no doubt, but not a lot of smaller players. The Klinker Brick is vying for first. Zinfandel, especially single vineyard, small producer Zin, is a niche product, there is no doubt about that. This line-up is really pretty solid when you think about it, so it just might be the best place to start if you're building up your Zin list for the coming cool days of Autumn.
