A Well-Balanced and Versatile Zinfandel

If you are in the mood for a great bottle of wine, but don't want to spend an arm and a leg for it, I have a wonderful suggestion for you: Beaulieu Vineyard's 2006 Zinfandel (Napa Valley). Right now, Safeway has it on sale for $9.98 from $16.99.

This wine has a deep dark ruby color. It is full-bodied, and somewhat nutty, with rich and concentrated flavors of black pepper and berries. You can enjoy this wine with a variety of foods, including hamburgers, chicken, barbecues, or simply enjoy it by itself.

If you are in Napa Valley, Beaulieu is a great winery to visit. Here is a link to the Winery's website: http://www.bvwines.com/home.aspx.

Until next time . . . Cheers!
