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!
