I enjoy 4 Vines Zinfandel and thought it was pretty awesome that my dad picked it up to pair with the shrimp scampi he made for Christmas Eve dinner. On the back of the bottle, it says “Step away from the barrel!” – yes, this Chardonnay has not touched ANY oak.
No butter or vanilla on this of course… Just lots of apple and pear. Midpalate has lots of sour apple and even some pineapple and the finish is crisp but doesn’t make my mouth pucker much. This was great with the shrimp scampi, would also love to try it with dungeness crab cocktail.
