Amador County Grandmere 2007 Zinfandel
This $12.50 bottle was perfect for the first Spring-infused outdoor dinner and grill-fest of the year. The peppery-chocolate flavors really came out with the grilled chicken (buffalo style). Dark blackberries and spice make this a powerful mouthful.
A great BBQ wine, this is one to have on hand for your next outdoor event where you can relax and enjoy - 7/10 rating. I was skeptical of the Kirkland wine, but this left me smiling.
