Wine Deal of the Week

BBQ grills see action year-around in Southern California. Pair your next BBQ with this week’s wine deal of the 2013 Ravenswood Single Vineyard Sonoma Valley Barricia Zinfandel for only $15 at 3rd Corner Wine Shop and Bistro on South Coast Highway 101 in downtown Encinitas.

Zinfandel makes a great paring with spicy BBQ, because the spiciness in the wine will hold up to the spiciness of the food. This deliciously jammy single vineyard wine is packed with berry fruit, while also having hints of raisin and fig. Some wine fans insist they sense peach yogurt when enjoying Zinfandels, but my palate never registers that particular flavor. You’ll also get a sense of oak and some black pepper to spice things up, as mentioned previously. This is a big wine!

Selling for $39 on the Ravenswood website, wine buyer and Certified Sommelier Dave found a stellar deal from his distributor, and can offer the over 60% discount to members of his no-fee wine club.
