wine list wednesday: bonterra zinfandel

i was a little disappointed by this zinfandel. its not that its bad by any means but just meah- its got a bit of the light fruity characteristic you would expect from a zinfandel and it is most certainly well balanced and smooth, but it really doesnt do too much. maybe a hint of mineral on the tongue. i was hoping that if i left it open and breathing for a while that it would change, and it did a bit the fruit became a bit more developed and forward.

 i was hoping to love it especially since it is an organic california wine. i guess for the 10$ price its ok if i really felt pressed to have an organic wine but there are many other similarly priced wines out there that i would rather try.
