My boy Joel

Meet the love of my life, Joel Gott. Ok, kidding. But seriously, have you tried the Joel Gott Zinfandel
"The 2008 Joel Gott California Zinfandel boasts aromas of cocoa, raspberries, and ripe strawberries. On the palate the wine is round and juicy with flavors of pepper, anise, dark cherry and spice, ending with a lingering finish."

i.e. heaveninabottle. 

It is undoubtedly more robust than the Mark West Pinot Noir I talked about in this post, but as my palate has developed over the past few months, I have found that I truly love a big, sexy Cabernet Sauvignon or a jammy Zinfandel (Note: not to be confused with White Zinfandel. That is a completely different animal, one that I have absolutely no interest in taking home from the pound, thankyouverymuch.) I'm also really enjoying Italian wines, particularly a nice, peppery Sangiovese. Delicious. 

So tell me, what do you drink? I'd certainly love to know, as I'm always looking to try something new!


  1. Pinot Noir is my fav also! Salmon Run Pinot Noir is to die for, but sadly it's not sold in NC. Boo! I have it shipped to me though :) I'm not a big fan of whites at all, but last summer I actually started to enjoy a little White Zin every now and then. I used to associate it only with box wine, lol! But some bottles are really good and refreshing on a hot and sticky day! Your Joel Gott has totally peaked my interest... is it sold anywhere?
