Howdy, wine drinker.
I’m Jacob from I Want You to Drink More Wine.
In this video, I’m going to share an honest wine review, and suggest a pairing that complements this wine perfectly.
Today we’re going to be pairing an old vine Zinfandel and a delicious pork dish.
Let’s check out our wine.
Bogle Old Vine Zinfandel 2014
As you can see here, I have a BOGLE Old Vine Zinfandel.
This is a 2014 out of California.
Now this wine is going to have a nice fruit forwardness.
I wanted to find a pairing that would match this nicely that I haven’t tried before.
So let’s go ahead and check out this pairing and see how it goes together, because I’m excited because it’s new to me.
I have to be sure to show you this dish.
I don’t know if you can see it, but our fancy chef did a little nice number.
I think our pork is rolling down, but this is a pork tonkatsu.
It’s fried pork with a nice Asian fusion sauce on top of the pork.
I’m excited to try this, because I think what’s really going to hit this number is the sauce.
Let’s give it a try and let’s just do it.
Now you know I had to get a decent-sized bite.
I got a lot of sauce on this.
A lot to chew.
Oh, this is interesting.
I didn’t know what to expect here but this actually pairs very nicely.
Give This Pairing a Try
If you’re going to try this, make sure to get the recipe right up here.
It doesn’t take that long.
I think this whole recipe took us 15, 20 minutes to make.
Because you’re going to batter and fry it, and then you just make this simple sauce that goes on top for the pork tonkatsu.
And if you’re going to pick up this wine to pair it, Vivino has it at $11 is the average price for this.
Old Vine BOGLE, Old Vine Zinfandel.
Multiple buying options I see here.
Four or five.
I think I got this at Lucky’s Market.
Check out this pairing.
Give it a try.
