HRM Rex Goliath NV Zinfandel (California)

There are only two numbers on this bottle (if you don't count the price tag):  the alcohol is 13.5% and the number '47' - which refers to the weight of the "World's Largest Rooster" that this wine is named after.  Tonight it's a simple dinner of macaroni and cheese, not rooster; so I thought I would go for a simple wine.  I know I have had this Zin lying about for a few years but it still smells and tastes youthful and fruity.  Lots of plum and chocolate, black cherry and vanilla ... a tasty wine that hits the easy-to-drink spot I was looking for.
