A lot of Wines at Tommy's Clambake (again) (Tommy K's.): This used to be such an excellent value. I have not had it in a while and I was told the price is north of $25. Still probably worth it. At this point, this is soft and juicy. Much of its Zinness is gone, but it is still a quite pleasurable red wine. Shows some complexity. Nice balance. Nice finish.

(Seghesio Family Vineyards Zinfandel (Sonoma County, USA)) Bottled under Stelvin screwcap. A very bright and vibrant wine here, dark at the core but with a cherry red rim. The nose is, as you might expect for a young Zinfandel, loaded with fruit, with notes of blueberry and blackberry spiced with leather, tar and even a trace of smoky, paprika-laced tomato. A nice fleshy presence on entry, and then through the midpalate it is plump, polished and rounded, with some spicy grip. The acidity is rather muted which would be a problem for some, but the wine has some grippy structure. A good, fun, summer wine which could follow the Charles Melton wine on barbecue day!
