Brazin Old Vine Zinfandel 2010


In the Daily Telegraph, Susy Atkins agrees with Fiona Beckett, that anyone inclined to show off with a special bottle of red on Christmas Day should be very careful.

Atkins said: “If you want the wine to be a talking-point, go for the more unusual and highly regarded Californian red Zinfandel.”

She added this wine is, “top choice on Christmas Day, with its brightly fruity, ripe blueberry and raspberry fruit, liquorice edge and warming hint of clove.”
