Food pairings - Zinfandel pairs well with most BBQ beef and pork dishes as well as being just a great party wine.
Again. These are not in any particular order and check this list often as I will be adding more Zin's that make the best of the best list.

2010 Renwood Old Vine Zinfandel - Dry Creek Valley, California

2008 Gnarly Head Old Vine Zinfandel - Lodi California
Dude ! This gnarly Zin has aromas of dark cherry, cedar, smoke and some pepper. Big and bold flavours of cherries and dark chocolate with tannins that are quite pronounced. This wine nicely goes with a pepperoni pizza or beef fajitas.
Price - under $18 (LCBO)
2010 Bonterra Zinfandel - Mendocino County California
A another big rich Zinfandel from an organic vineyard on the northern coast of California. Deep dark colour and a dark berry fruit flavour with aromas of spice and tobacco coupled with the 14.5% ABV give this Zin a full bodied feel. Tannins are present but more subtle. A nice full bodied Zinfandel to be served with BBQ beef ribs or burgers
Price - $17 (LCBO)
2009 Ravenswood Old Vine Zinfandel - Lodi California
Price - under $20 (LCBO)
A good buy at under $20. Rich and full Zinfandel with lots of fruit and a long finish.
Price - under $20 LCBO Vintages (279810)
