Pizza Wine…Finally

Sorry guys.  I didn’t mean to take so long on this topic, but I have been incredibly busy lately so the posting has fallen off.  The wine that I found as a casual, everyday ‘pizza wine’ is the 2006 Gnarly Head Old Vines Zinfandel.

This wine is very good.  As mentioned the Spirit Shop has it for 10.99 a bottle.  It’s got lots of red fruit and pepper and a surprisingly long finish.  Its medium bodied and pairs really well with the red sauce in pizza.  I give it a solid 89.  As an aside I was at a family reunion this past weekend and the aforementioned Uncle showed up with a case it.  He manged to pick it up in NJ for under $8 a bottle which would make it a screaming value!
