Wine of the Day: Plungerhead Zinfandel for Sunday Funday

Juicy, ripe, easy, and approachable, Plungerhead Old Vine Zinfandel ($16) is the perfect wine to pair with burgers, barbecued ribs and brisket, or a platter of sweet and spicy wings while watching your favorite sporting event. From predominantly vineyards within Lodi’s Mokelumne River Basin sub-AVA, filled with sandy, dense soils that retain their heat while allowing water to easily drain, creating powerful wines filled with rich ripeness and a fruit-forward palate.

The winery adds a touch of sun-loving Petite Sirah and Mourvedre, Tempranillo and Merlot, to balance the overall palate while adding easy structure. The wine opens with floral, savory herb, toasted oak, and spice notes leading to a palate filled with blackberry jam, blueberry pie, ripe plum, and dark chocolate with a lingering, velvety finish that melts easily onto the back palate. #cheers
