Here we go. This is better than anything I could have made up. First of all, Doug Beckett, the owner of Peachy Canyon, is a … hmmm. How can I put this politely? How about lunatic? And we fell in love with him immediately! We could relate.
Only a certifiable lunatic would bring an old Zin to the Zin Fest where there are multiple wines that could easily smack it down. It took someone having a brass pair to do this, but when I saw “the poster,” I knew that Doug was the guy.
He brought a 1996 Peachy Canyon Zinfandel to the Zin Fest party. I tasted it and was blown away. You can see the review right here … what do you think?
