Borsao Tinto 2010

I found this plum and raspberry accented wine to be pretty delicious for such a young and low cost wine. It has a lot of very dry and sharp flavors. The wine is very good as a table wine with meals. I would buy it again considering you can get it for as little as $8-10. Made from Grenache grapes in Spain this is a decent selection.

A young but tasty wine.

Joel Gott 2009 Zinfandel

This inexpensive zinfandel will run you about $15. It’s not a bad choice for a dinner involving red meat, or if you just want some table wine. It’s not really remarkable, but I found it enjoyable. There is lots of taste of sweet cherries, plums and berries. I think there may be a hint of vanilla and it’s pretty warm. This wine is very soft on the palate and has a berry finish. It’s pretty dry for your average zin and it’s very drinkable. I don’t think I would buy it again, but it wasn’t bad.

An unremarkable zinfandel from California.
