wine friday: hillgate zinfandel.

Is anyone else overjoyed that it’s Friday?

Now that we’ve moved into January the buzz and excitement of the holidays feels…forever ago.

Life returns to normal…

kids back to school…

work goes on…

time to re-organize your house for the umpteenth time to find places for all your new gifts and…

except for occasional pine needle you find hiding in the corner of the living room, Christmas is most definitely a thing of the past.

So Happy First Friday of 2012!

For your consideration:  Hillgate Zinfandel

This Zinfandel has an alcohol content of 14.9%, fairly high for its price point.  It’s smooth, rich and bold…I brought it to a friend’s house for dinner last week and we were all quite impressed.

Zins are often dry, spicy and fruity so they stand up well to spicy foods.  Pair with pizza, lasagna, pasta with red sauce, sausage and peppers and other bold foods including grilled meats and bbq.

$6.99 at Trader Joes.

Happy Friday!
