Weathered

The challenge this week is weathered . I immediately knew it had to be Zin.

The Zinfandel has a black skinned grape. It is planted in 10 percent of Californias vineyards. The most sought after plants are well over 100 years old, being able to use the term, century vine. If the plant is younger (40 years or more) then the term old vine is allowed. The Dry Creek AVA , in Sonoma County, is known for having plants well over the century mark and is where this photo was taken.

The strangest fact to me is that white zinfandel sell are 6 percent higher across the US than a regular zin. hmmmmmmm
