Had the 2007 Alexander Vineyards Zinfandel Temptation Sunday night. In the Summer my tastes definitely turn towards light fare, both for food and drink. This Zin fit the bill. It was filled with lots of sour cherry and pepper flavors. Lighter and medium bodied it was definitely not one of the blockbuster mega-zins that seem to be all the rage today. While I might not have enjoyed this as much in the winter it was perfect for al fresco dining on paella on a hot June evening. Would go well with all sorts of barbeque as well. I rated it a solid 88.
