Man the holidays got here fast! I mean they always do but I feel like this year especially because of Thanksgiving being so late. Luckily Otto’s Wine & Spirits is taking away all the stress and getting us prepared with all the amazing wine, beer and spirits they offer at such great deals. I’m really excited about the wine we’re featuring today on Happy Hour with Hannah and Otto’s Wine & Spirits. It’s the Plungerhead 2016 Zinfandel and it’s literally perfect for the holidays. Whether you’re attending lots of parties or hosting them you’re for sure going to want lots of wine on hand and this 2016 Plungerhead Zinfandel is the perfect option. Yes the brand is called Plungerhead and yes on the bottle is a man with a plunger on his head but don’t let this weirdness fool you. It’s a well-made wine sourced from high-quality grapes grown in Lodi, California. It’s an unpretentious brand that focuses on just making great wine. In fact the name came from a guy by the name of Edgar B. Plongerheid who was fed up with people misspelling and mispronouncing his name so he just said call me “Plungerhead” and the rest is history. I love how they had fun with this brand and focus on not taking life too seriously but still produce a top notch quality product.
Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty of this wine and what makes it so great. The color and aroma first of all. It’s a beautiful dark ruby color with aromas of raspberry, cinnamon, toasted cedar and fresh-from-the-oven cherry pie. Not sure it gets much better than that! Oh but then you hear about the flavor and it does get better! It begins with Bing cherry, sweetened cranberry, raspberry jam, caramel and toasted coconut. YUM! At this point your mouth is probably watering and you’re thinking how could this get any better. Then it went and got better because this is a memorable wine that can be enjoyed any way you want. It’s a perfect pairing for BBQ ribs, grilled burgers or even Hawaiian pizza. It’s such a versatile wine packed with big flavors that’s perfect for any type of gathering you may have coming up and pairs well with any food you choose.
Now to the most important part. Otto’s has never steered us wrong when it came to picking a great wine and they always keep their customer in mind when it comes to price. This 2016 Plungerhead Zinfandel is ON-SALE for just $10.99 a bottle. You know you’ll need this wine for parties or hostess gifts so stock up and save! Otto’s Wine & Spirits has seven different locations so you’re sure to find out near you! As always you can join us on the 95.7 BIG FM Facebook page as we go LIVE at 4pm today (12/5). Morning guy Brett Andrews joins me along with his wife Michaela and I'm guessing his son will make an appearance too! I can't wait!
