Yes, it is a red wine grape grown in California primarily.  It is a clone of the Croatian grape called Crljenak.  The Italian grape called Primitivo is also a clone of Crljenak.  In Croatia, Zinfandel is called Tribidrag, and it has been around since the 15th century.

And Zinfandel isn't to be confused with the so called White Zinfandel, the latter which is a semi-sweet blush style wine.  These can be quite good in the correct vinter's development, but somwhere along the line White Zinfandel became a wine that is mass produced and sold at somewhere around 5 to 6 times as often as regular Red Zinfandel.

Tonight ... Parsana's Sicilian Gravy with ground beef mixed in, served on a bed of Colavita's radiators #69, and a salad of baby agrula, red mustard leaf, lettuce, mizuno, and cress on the side. :icon_cool: :icon_biggrin:

The only thing missing was some red wine, which I decided not to open up a bottle this weekend, since I have a another day of clearing out the hobby storage unit on Sunday.  Need to be up early, and wouldn't want yummy wine getting in the way of that in the morning.

Made lobster tail for dinner with corn on the cob, mashed potatoes and a delicious Red Lobster® biscuit.

Had Tourtière tonight.
I choose too keep "Old Warhammer" alive with my blood sweat and tears.

It's bad that warhammer might die but it would be a tragedy if it stays dead!
