    What is everyones favorite red zin?
    I have always leaned towords Ridge and Ravenswood. With the holidays coming,these are great wines to serve with holiday fare.
    Just remember they are very hot wines (alcohol content):0

    I've found that as a general rule, Australian red zins are very robust and well worth drinking.

    Turley Zins are one of the best.Kind of a cult zin, very hard to find limited production and bought on futures. So very little finds it's way to our tables.

    For everyday, Saucelito Canyon puts out a great wine at $15-17.
