White Zinfandel/Chardonnay & Garbanzo Chimichangas

Beringer White Zinfandel & Chardonnay 2006 – California
This is Beringer’s “new” white zin – an 80/20 blend of zinfandel and chardonnay. It retains the wonderful strawberry nose. It’s darker pink than the regular white zin (odd, as it’s blended with a white). Deeper tastes, strawberries, and not quite as soft as the regular white zin. The Chardonnay gives it some weight and depth. House/Yes. $7.50

We made Garbanzo Chimichangas, adapted from Horn of the Moon cookbook. The light Rose wine went well with them.
