Wine should not be regarded simply as a beverage, but as an art of living, a pleasure.” – Henri Jayer

Welcome to The Hedonistic Taster, a binNotes | redThread™ trade sampling of artisan wines.

Today’s Tasting:

Troon Vineyard | Zinfandel 2014

Made from Troon Vineyard Zinfandel vines planted in 1972, the same year that The French Connection won the Oscar for Best Picture, and The Summer of ’42 won for Best Dramatic Film Score, this scene-stealer garners awards of its own for quality and value.
