What you need to know!

Petite Sirah - Zinfandel blends are as American as Bruce Springsteen eating apple pie on the Fourth of July. It is a blend of two grapes which the USA is really famous for, and can actually be recognized as American grapes now. And in true American spirit, these wines are bigger, badder, better, and as unrelenting rock and roll as wine can get.

Petite Sirah and Zinfandel blends take no prisoners. They ask questions and then attempt to answer them straight away. Why does red wine have to be refined, why do we have to mix the same grapes together just because the French do it, why can't a red wine be tannic, fruity, and have a heavy body at the same time? These blends often attempt to be all of those things, the result is always something wild, something unexpected, and yet always so uniquely American.

Food pairings

Burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, and good old Southern BBQ. Also a great wine to have with a turkey dinner, especially if you call that dinner Thanksgiving. 

Scouting tips

Petite Sirah - Zinfandel blends can be wild, and vary to extremes, but the best way is to get in there and try a few. Perhaps the best known wine is a typical American one that you can find anywhere, called The Prisoner.

Occasion Pairings

Presidential inauguration parties, Fourth of July jams, fireworks displays. Whenever your patriotic streak kicks in. Great wine to bring to a Superbowl party because it will pair with any food you throw at it, and any team that happens to be on TV.  

Anything else?

Take something big, add something bigger, like a Dodge Charger with 900 horsepower. Yes it twisted the the chassis and went off the starting line on two wheels, but look at it go! Plus it did help to get Dom out of a pinch twice in the later movies. It is the stuff of legend, even if that legend is absolutely insane and is barely clinging on to reality. Thats PS-Zin for you.
