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.

What would you drink while screening Sour Grapes? – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

What would you drink while screening Sour Grapes?

We're going to be screening Sour Grapes tomorrow and I thought I'd be fun to drink some wine related to the story. Obviously I'm never going to be able to afford the wine Rudy was faking but what would you serve as an alternatives?

I'm thinking some decent Burgundies, an affordable premier cru, or Domaine de Villaine (the closest to DRC I'll likely every get).

Price range around $50ish, what do you recommend?

Chateau Palmer pairing ideas – Athan Zafirov Wine Blog

Chateau Palmer pairing ideas

I've got a bottle of Chateau Palmer 91 to celebrate a special occasion and wanted ideas for a perfect pairing. It's a rare opportunity for me to taste wine of this class, so I want to make the best of it. I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations for something to really show it off.

So far everything I've read recommends simple meat dishes without any sauce to avoid distracting from the wine, I'm thinking something like a rare steak or duck breast with dauphinoise potatoes could fit the bill.
