Things you find while looking for other things . . . On the way home from one of the very few days of temp work I pick up (check the Puma Sneaker Line in Summer ’08 – your’s truly picked the colors . . . no lie . . . long story) I popped into the NH State Liquor store to buy a bottle of locally made wine (yes there is such a thing) and found this Zinfandel with cult illustrator Ralph Steadman’s art all over it. Cardinal Zin is distributed by Underdog Wine Merchants –
“We are zealous believers in the decadent and forbidden flavors of this sinfully delicious Zinfandel. Grown from Beastly Old Vines (vines in the ground for 20+ years), this wine elicits fervent, fecund and frenzied tongue enveloping pleasures. A wine of substance, it’s a Cardinal Zin not to drink at the altar of this decadent, rich and spicy old vine zinfandel.”
Don’t ask me how it tastes yet, I bought it for the label. Personally I am working my way through a bottle of Farnum Hill Cider.
