The Wine Scout: Rosé State of Mind

My wine education began the day I started waiting tables; one of the first things I learned was that everyone seemed to agree “Friends don’t let friends drink White Zinfandel.” Every other restaurant carried some version — Sutter Home or Beringer White Zin — but our sommelier refused to entertain the notion of having any at all. I remember this one time a little old lady came in and asked for a glass of White Zin, and he frowned and looked at her like she’d asked for a glass of vomit. But I wanted to make her happy so I grabbed a glass of the sweetest Riesling we carried and poured in a dash of red wine.
