Buffalo Grove zinfandel review: great news

17 01 2011

Today we review a $9 red zinfandel from the 2009 vintage in the exclusive wine region “California.”

HEY this zin is nice, and it’s cheap.  Is it great?  No.  Do I want to keep drinking glass after glass?  No, but then again, I don’t really love red zinfandel. 

If I did love zinfandel, I would absolutely love Buffalo Grove.  It’s totally drinkable.  That’s saying a lot, because I usually hate inexpensive red wine.  I found this at Total Wine.  It smells like a generic California red, but it has a snappy, bright, peppery, open and very berry-berry taste that wakes you up.  And at just 12.5% alcohol, it’s easy-drinking.  I liked the deeper, darker Zen of Zin more, but that’s a little more expensive.
