Hey, everyone, it's peach time! If you haven't made a trip to Lynd's Fruit Farm in Pataskala or visited your local farmer's market lately, now is the time for buying some of Ohio's scrumptious fresh peaches; there's nothing like them.
Some friends of mine just returned from visiting some old pals in Michigan and they told me they were delighted when their host sliced up some fresh peaches, put them in a tumbler, and poured dry red wine over them. Turns out you just sip your red wine until only the peaches remain and then you eat those wine soaked, delectable peaches one by one. Yum. When I heard this I asked Josh to do what he does best and search for the perfect red wine to offer you so that you too can try this home grown delicacy. Lo and behold he came up with a Lodi Zinfandel that totally fits the bill! What a guy.
Angry Bunch represents a family of Zinfandels produced from superior AVAs and vineyard sites in northern California. The name "Angry Bunch" refers to the powerful, boldly flavored style produced from the area's burly old-vine Zinfandel. In fact, the Code of the Angry Bunch, below, ensures that only fully ripe and ready grapes bursting with flavor become part of any Angry Bunch Zin.
"I, Zinfandel Grape, do hereby pledge to uphold the code of the Angry Bunch. I promise to be in tip top shape, before they crush me and take all my juice. I will always strive to give off a color so dark and brooding, some would call it violent violet. I solemnly swear that I will not tap dance on your taste buds, but will make a mosh pit out of them. I shall look down upon weaker and thin-skinned grapes, that can't hang with us in our vineyards, and laugh at weaker wines with higher prices. Above all, I promise to be angry, so that you, the wine drinker, can be happy. If I fail to uphold any of the aforementioned promises, my membership to the Angry Bunch will forever be revoked." Enjoy the fruit of their labor!
