WineWalkabout WW

Earlier this year while exploring the Santa Clara wineries we were lucky enough to come across a very unique outdoor tasting room. The Satori tasting room is a cross between a Jimmy Buffet, Jamaican Island themed resort. While tasting their wine, the 2010 Oh-So-Zin, Santa Clara Valley Estate, caught our attention. A bottle was purchased and stashed in the wine fridge. Well earlier this week it was removed from the fridge, the cork pulled and a couple glasses poured while preparing spicy BBQ chicken. During dinner the rest was consumed. It was a great pairing (purely by chance) that was thoroughly enjoyed.
To quote the winery description of this wine 'Tantalizing aromas of honey, mint and Madagascar vanilla. Then “Thwack!” Dazzling blackberry and red currant fruit surfing on firm balanced tannins to a magical, endless-summer finish. Zin up!'

Just outside the **** range at $28 it was a very nice drinking Zinfandel and rates a 6+. Satori is a fun place to go taste and some nice wines at reasonable prices. Go on by and experience the relaxed vibe at this fun and unique tasting area and tell em we sent you!

Happy Tasting Adventures,
