Wine Harlots salute ideas (however harebrained ours might be.) And we raise a glass to Zin 91, a very delicious idea dreamt by Hubert Opici on his 91st birthday. The wine is classic zinfandel. A big bowl of blackberry jam dusted with spices of white pepper, clove and cinnamon. The perfect pairing is Ultimate Beef Stew. The music match is “Idea Three” by Belleruche from the album The Express. You might want to score multiples of Zin 91, because Wine Harlots have an idea one bottle won’t be enough.
