Classic Father’s Day fare leans toward big, juicy steaks or barbecued ribs – meats that taste great off the grill. An excellent wine choice for a backyard gathering to celebrate dads? Something equally big and juicy – a California Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel. The 2019 Cabernet from Jordan Vineyards is a doozy. It has intense aromas of black cherry and blackberry, and the palate explodes with dark fruit balanced with silky tannins and a lovely, long finish. It’s no wonder Wine Enthusiast gave this vintage 93 Points. If Zin is your dad’s thing, go really big with the yummy and affordable Four Virtues Bourbon Barrel Aged Zinfandel. The winemaker says it’s aged in heavily charred bourbon barrels that give layers of caramel, vanilla and oak to the deep dark berry notes make this a robust, complex, and silky smooth Zin. With wines like these, it should be Father’s Day every day!
