Broc Cellars "Vine Star" Zinfandel '16

There is an old yarn that since Thanksgiving is the most American of all Holidays (never mind the fact that it's celebrated in Canada too), the best wine for the meal should be that most American of all wines: Zinfandel. Unfortunately, the world of Zinfandel has become very challenging to navigate if you are looking for a wine that goes with food - alcohol levels in excess of 15% are par for the course, aging in new oak often goes without saying, not to mention all of the other tricks of the trade (de-acidifying, adding water to lower excessive alcohol, reverse osmosis, etc) that have become commonplace even in the most prestigious of bottles. Chris Brockway doesn't go in for such shenanigans, and his Vine Star Zinfandel has become a contemporary touchstone for exactly what makes Zinfandel so charming. Beautifully straddling the sweet/tart divide that in inherent to the variety, this wine has generous fruit, and crackling acidity. It's an uncomplicated wine that's perfect for a complex meal, and it's not so high-octane that it'll lead to anyone doing something they might regret the next day.
