The first time I saw Adam Samberg was in the movie Hot Rod, and I was not very impressed. The next time I saw, or at least the next time that I can remember, was when he did that fake music video "Dick in a Box" with Justin Timberlake. I laughed hard.
Since then I have been a pretty big fan of The Lonely Island Videos on SNL and YouTube. The last one I saw cracked me up. It features a semi-delusional Michael Bolton belting Bolton-style about how amazing captain Jack Sparrow is. Take a look:
I used to dislike Zinfandel because I did not even know that red wine was made from the grape. I only knew about white Zinfandel, and that stuff is... hard to respect.
Well the day finally came (it's been a while now) when a good friend set me straight. I am writing this now to spread the word in case there are others out there with the same unjustified impression of Zin. Zinfandel makes some pretty good wine. If you like Malbec, or Cabernet Sauvignon, especially the BIG fruity versions that so often come out of California, you should give Zinfandel a chance.
Tonight I am drinking an inexpensive Zinfandel from from Gnarly Head. While it is cheap, and not the best Zin ever, it is a fairly good representation of what the grape usually tastes like. Big, fruity, jammy red fruit.
Now, if you decide you like the stuff, or you already know you like it, and you want to try my favorite, get a Zinfandel from Rombauer. I think they only make one, and it is amazing.
