Wine: Lambert Bridge Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

Can I just say that I absolutely LOVE the combination of zinfandel and grilled anything? Something about juicy strawberry, spice, and sweet oak combined with smoky, grilled flavors is just delicious.

I picked up a bottle of the Lambert Bridge Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel at during a trip to Sonoma. After much waiting, we finally opened it thinking it would pair nicely with dinner- grilled spring onions, romesco sauce, and roasted potatoes. Success!

Keep this great wine or your favorite Zin in mind for your next summer BBQ!

A blend of 85% zinfandel and 15% petite syrah from Lambert Bridge's own Winery Ranch vineyard. Great floral and fruity nose. Strawberries, raspberry with hints of spice on the palate, but not overly jammy. Balanced with an exceedingly long finish of sweet French oak. $40 at the winery.
