Seghesio Zinfandel 2015

Sonoma County, California, United States

Spicy, peppery but not heavy. Mouth-watering juicy lovely. The Seghesio Zinfandel is one of Californian's best Zins. It packed with jammy black fruit. This wine has been produced since 1895 and today the vines are about 30 years old. Serious zing for fun barbecues. The grapes for this Zinfandel grow in vineyards planted in the Alexander Valley and Dry Creek in Sonoma. Pair with gourmet hamburgers.

Loosen Bros. Dr. L. Sparkling Riesling

Deutscher Sekt, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany

Off dry but tastes less sweet because of the bubbles. Fans of Dr. L Riesling will lap up this bubbly, literally! It's fresh and crisp with lovely white peach and toasty pear notes. And my goodness, the price: you can't beat it. Is it a typo? Stock up for your weddings and big parties now. Try with fresh steam lobster and a marriage proposal.
