Zinfandel glass

Zinfandel glass

comestible | May 1, 2009 11:04 PM

I have been enjoying my new pinot and bordeaux glasses and wondered what glass you all prefer for a rich California zin. I've noticed they taste fruitier and more expansive in a pinot glass; more "closed," tannic and dense in a bordeaux glass.

I'm also noticing that some inexpensive Spanish wines that tend to drink a bit thin will be helped by the bordeaux glass -- concentrates the flavor somewhat.

Apologies if all this sounds newbie-ish. I've loved wines all my life but just now am learning about appropriate stemware.
