Messina Hof White Zinfandel 2007
Light pink color expected from a Zinfandel. Very light bodied that taste like watered down grape juice. Finish is almost non-existent. Not a good representation of Messina Hof but from my past experience it is a good representation of White Zins.Add winemaker's notes

I tried this wine over at a friend's holiday party. I am normally a fan of the occasional rose so I decided to give this a try. Not much going on here unfortunately. Messina Hof makes some decent wines but I don't think they put their best foot forward with this one. This wine was flat on the palate ("weak grape juice" as my friend described it). Not much of a finish. I would not use this as a gauge of the quality of Messina Hof wines as they have some wines that I have found to be quite reasonably priced and enjoyable. If trying a Messina Hof wine for the first time I would recommend looking to their riesling perhaps as a starter instead of this wine.
