EatinEatOut : Fall 2012
100 WWW.EATINEATOUT.CA The Wine Butler By LORI KENNEDY Smoking Loon 2009 Old Wine Zinfadel - $14.95 This wine is a great value wine from California for under $15. Aromas of red raspberry, with a hint of silky, spicy Mexican chocolate. This Zinfandel is full of warm spice and wild strawberry avors, with layers of raspberry, cinnamon bark, and clove. The complex blend of fruit and spice is well-balanced by this wine's refreshing, bright acidity, the hallmark of a classic, food-friendly style Zinfandel. Pair this wine with St. Louis style brown sugar BBQ ribs and honey mustard cole slaw, or try it with a grilled pork loin stuffed with stewed cherries. Yum! The Wine Butler is taking a well-deserved vacation before the huge holiday season ahead. I am happy to step in this time and take the reins of his wine column. I, too, will be travelling in September to tour wineries, this time to the Okanagan Valley in beautiful British Columbia. I'm looking forward to visiting some of the ne small wineries that region has to offer. Look for our huge wine section in the holiday entertaining issue - coming November 13. For now, here are a few my favorite go-to wines for under $15 that should take you well into Fall. Cheers!
