Wine Moment featuring Grifone Primitivo Zinfindel 2010
Hello Trader Joes’ Fans;
It is time for another Wine Moment with Delaina.
Trader Joes’ is offering Grifone Primitivo Zinfindel 2010 for only 3.99 (at my local). This is a rock’in good Zinfindel priced just right for those of us that want to enjoy our wine and not break the bank. The wine is Italian and as is typical, in my opinion, of Zinfindels is rich full of complexity. The wonderful complexity of this wine I credit to the soft vanilla and sharp raspberry tones; the juxtaposition of the two flavors are perfect.
As for paring, I had this wine with a tuna and squash and it paired wonderfully. This wine also passes my “it goes down just fine on its own” test, and I dare say with flying colors.
The Grifone would also make a great gift wine because it is soft enough for the novice drinker and complex enough for the sophisticate.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy Grifone in all is complex-simplicity.
