Our friends, wine industry vet Erin Mitchell and her vineyard manager husband Randy, make make a small but growing lineup of organic wine that manages to be both interesting and provocative while also being super friendly to natural wine newbies. Like this playful take on zinfandel, which pays homage to the White Zin wines that our parents served at dinner soirées in the 1970’s and 80’s. A quick pressing of the (organic since inception) Zin fruit gives us this beautiful deep pink wine that is bone-dry and racy, with spicy black fruit, brambly forest underbrush and Red Hots on the finish.
