This Deepwater Point Zinfandel 2007 from California is a triple-repeat wine for us. We really enjoy it. Tonight, on this second night of 2009, we are cozying up for a wintery Friday night in the bitter cold. I have a pot of chili on the stove (simmering, in honor of my father-in-law Joe), and I have a loaf of whole-wheat bread rising and almost ready to bake. We are reading two nights worth of newspapers because we didn’t realize that we had a paper last night sitting in our mailbox! The Christmas tree is still decorated and lit, but we will probably take down the decorations tomorrow.
This wine has an aroma of blackberry jam and fennel. On the palate is anise, green pepper, and strawberries. The finish is long with a taste of black pepper.
Tom and I are going to watch a movie tonight and get cozy. Cheers!
