Snarling at Snooth Over Zin!

I'm a Paso Robles Zinfandel fan, and I grabbed some popcorn as I prepared gleefully for the carnage. Paso Zins were going to kick some serious Napa butt, right? But as I read through the article - with horror, I might add - that was not to be. Not because Paso Zins were bad. They just weren't invited to the party.

What's interesting - at least to my eyes and is the complete antithesis of American White Zin producers - they are using a green bottle and though I've only been able to look at it in pictures, the wine actually looks, well, *white*!

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.

Zin Festival - A Vegas Wineaux Series!

It wasn't just because of the wines - although that had a lot to do with it - but it was because of the Wild Game BBQ that Augie hosted. So it was our stomachs that made the decision for us. What a shock, right?

The Wineaux Guy and I did some reviews of Zinfandels and other wines while there, and we did one-minute commentaries on the various Zins that we tasted at the Grand Tasting. But the most memorable part of this is the hat.
