Robin's Nest Cottage 2015 Wine Guide
Zinfandel is a distinctly American grape that captures spicy ripe red fruit notes, generally with higher alcohol. It can be used to pair with barbecue, pizza, pasta, and burgers. Although America, especially California, has some truly outstanding wines, perhaps there is no other varietal that screams California than Zin.

Finding a great Zinfandel shouldn't be hard - but because it's the most planted, it's also has the biggest selection. Many of which should be passed over. Here's our take on 5 best buys that you should try now. Try them all and find one that you can make your "House Red."
