By now you know about Kevin’s penchant for making me cringe at the names he gives his wine tastings. This week it’s one that he keeps in his back pocket to upset me each Independence day weekend. As much as I grit my teeth, though, the wines are a legitimately lovely handful of American treats, and while I’m less of a Zinfandel drinker than most, I have to say: that Zin is my favorite of the lot. Come taste them all this Saturday, June 30, at 2:00. It’ll only cost you a ten-spot, plus tax and tip. You’ll need to make a reservation (we don’t hold seats for web or email reservations, so call us at 326-9363) and you’ll be glad you did, but you should do it soon, as it’s already more than half full. Consider it.
