I think this is the perfect chili or pulled pork wine, and since this endless winter has called for such cozy dishes for longer than I remember from past winters, Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel is here to stay.
I love Zinfandels that are bursting with dark berry flavor, a little sweet strawberry jam, and a big bold finish. This Gnarly Head Zin from Lodi, California has all of that with some cocoa added in, making it ideal to go with the kinds of spices you find at a BBQ. And while I adore a good Zin in the winter, they can be just as at home when you are grilling up burgers and ribs when summer comes.
Are you a fan of Zinfandel? Do you have a favorite I should try?
