Oak Grove Zinfandel Reserve 2006, California, $7.99 at Total Wine & More.
Zinfandel has almost replaced pinot noir as our favorite red this summer. There are some nice examples out there – at even nicer prices. This one has a jammy, spicy aroma and flavors of dark berries and black pepper. Not too heavy, it would be just the thing with grilled beef.
