Knowing the BF is a lover of zinfandels, I chose the North Coast Zinfandels tasting package! This particular assortment featured wines with vintages ranging from 2007-2010 and price tags between $17-$30. We ended up setting up a little cheese spread to pair with our wines and had a lovely Saturday afternoon of wine tasting! A wine sampler from TastingRoom.com is the perfect gift for any wine lover, or even for yourself, especially if you are interested in learning about a particular variety. Who says you have to head to Napa for the full wine tasting experience?
Let the wine tasting adventure begin!
