Armida Winery’s “Poizin” Zinfandel 2009

I wanted to start this section with a wine that catches the eye. Poizin,  “A wine to die for”, certainly has eye appeal to the discerning goth vampire, or anyone with a good sense of humor.
The wine is a Sonoma County based wine, that comes in a beautiful decorative coffin, with a bright red skull and crossbones on the label. With the obvious gimmick involved with the wine I have to admit my expectations were pretty low. “Poizin” however was a shocking surprise when it came to such wines.

It is a full-bodied wine, very fruity up front, with a touch of plumb, blackberry and a touch of oak and spice at the finish. On a scale of 1-50 I would rate this wine as a strong 38. For the price, which is around 20 a bottle I would say you get every cent you paid for it, and a pretty cool little coffin to go on the mantel.
