So Brazin!

Life is good, I am sitting in cool Carlsbad California on a patio writing about wine....can it get any better? Well I suppose you could say if I was drinking wine it could be better. It is only 9 am though and even I have to draw the line somewhere! You all know that Bloody Mary's are the breakfast drink of choice! I have not even had breakfast yet, so give me an hour...

Yesterday my guy and I arrived in Carlsbad, and spent the afternoon lounging by the pool. OK I was trying to nap and recover from working till 1am and then getting up at 6 am to drive the 6 hours it takes to get out of the heat. Napping not quite as easy as it sounds though when you are sharing the pool with about 30 kids...So as evening arrived, we decided it was time to have some wine and take in a sunset.

With the help of Robert the bartender the perfect wine choice was made. Brazin Old Vine Zin from Lodi California, is a deep cherry red with the flavors of dark berries, pepper and dates. This wine is full of flavor and has beautifully silky legs. Not being one of the biggest Zinfandel's I have ever had or as light as say a Pinot Noir this makes a great sunset watching wine!
