I’m thrilled to collaborate with P. Harrell Wines to introduce . . . Black Smoke Zin! This is a fantastic, limited-edition wine that pairs well with, what else, barbecue. This Zinfandel, blended with 85% Zinfandel and 15% Petite Sirah, is full-bodied & fruit-driven, supported by layers of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, and a hint of white pepper. Indeed, this is a classic Dry Creek Zinfandel, but its abundance of diverse flavors reminds me of the creativity of the partnership between P. Harrell Zin and Black Smoke.
P. Harrell Wines is a Black-owned, woman-owned business founded by vintner Paula Harrell. This wine is $42 per bottle, plus tax, shipping, and handling. For $65, you may also bundle a bottle of Black Smoke Zin with a copy of the James Beard Award-nominated book Black Smoke: African Americans and the United States of Barbecue.
