MARCH 2014 Insider Pick from Stephen Schiedel, Portfolio Manager for Wines of Canada, USA and South America: "Zinfandel is basically a grape unto California which loves all that sunshine and the west coast menu. On Canada’s best-coast we have similar conditions to make this medium bodied, berry-delicious Zinfandel work really well. Try with spicy Asian cuisine or spicy wings or mac-n-cheese with bacon on top."
