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.
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.
