Help with red zin – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Help with red zin

First off, I know I don't drink enough wine to learn all the flavors across many varieties, so I decided to stick mostly to one (Red Zinfandel) to remove variables while I learn what I like.

Turns out I like "jammy" wines, like InZinerator and Zinsane. I just finished my last bottle of 2010 Sextant Paso Robles, probably my favorite so far.

Any suggestions of what to try next? I prefer about $12-15 per bottle, I'm in NY, and the name does not need to be a pun.

I'd really like something that will improve over about 5 years as I slowly work my way through at most a half case.
