Cardinal Zin

Auch wenn dieser Wein 14 % Alkohol in sich birgt, ist er ein durchaus schlanker Vertreter seiner Art. Es ist ein Zin, ein Zinfandel – ein Wein also, mit dem ich im Wesentlichen aufgespritzte Botox-Weine verbind, die ich normalerweise rechts in die Kategorie Popcorn-Wein verlagere. Nicht so dieser salopp daherkommende Rote, wo Zin draufsteht, aber nicht komplett Zin drin ist. Auch wenn es die dominierende Rebsorte ist, haben sich Carignan und Sangiovese eingeschlichen. Eine ungewöhnliche Kombination, die aber nicht weiter überrascht, wenn man Randall Grahm kennt, den Macher dieses Weins und Gründer der Bonny Doon Winery. Da ist so ziemlich alles ungewöhnlich. Der Mann verschneidet auch kalifornische Weißweine mit Moselriesling. Er arbeitet völlig unorthodox, die Weine sind genauso wie die Etiketten. Sie spielen mit den verschiedensten Stilen, nichts ist ihm wirklich heilig und trotzdem ist er kein Ikonoklast, er zerstört nicht, sondern zitiert.


Ok, abseits der Schwafelei – ich höre ja schon auf – birgt dieser Wein nur leichte Tannine, man findet neben der Kirsch- und Blaubeerfrucht einen Teelöffel voll Gewürze, etwas Orange vielleicht und ein wenig Teer und vor allem eine klare Säure, die diesen Wein angenehm rund und sehr trinkbar macht.

In Zukunft allerdings wird dieser Wein, neben Grahms zweitem Topseller Big Hous, nicht mehr von ihm selber gemacht. Die beiden Label sind an The Wine Group LLC verkauft worden, “Bonny Doon möchte sich auf seine Wurzeln besinnen und terroirgeprägte, biodynamisch angebaute Weine erzeugen”.

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing problems with your website.
    It appears as though some of the text on your posts are
    running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them
    as well? This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this
    happen previously. Thanks

  2. For now the college is using an empirical approach to the i – Pad
    which has generated mixed results. Consider using your refund towards the cause of adoption, and get a
    tax deduction when you file next year. With time changes, Vietnam being one day ahead of the United States,
    it is very possible Nia was born on or around March 7th’.

  3. Whether you are coaching recreational youth basketball
    or a competitive AAU basketball program with these simple tips you can help your team stay focused, motivated and playing as hard
    as they can all the time. Plastic is much cheaper, but let’s face it, playing on a
    plastic backboard is nothing compared to playing on glass backboards.
    While these types of hoops obviously require more
    work to install, which can always be hired out to
    any general laborer, by the way, most people favor
    them because they offer a lot more stability and an authentic game experience.

  12. Alternative pain relief is any technique that is not included in the mainstream healthcare but
    is considered to be effective for pain relief.
    This apart other holistic back care practices would
    include practicing yoga, Pilates and acupressure and are some of the best ways for natural back pain relief.

    up straight again.
