Why Sommeliers are Drinking White Zinfandel

In the ’70s and ’80s, White Zinfandel reigned. Americans loved this sweet pink wine made from California’s red Zinfandel grape. (Many 
still do; Sutter Home produces 3 million cases annually.) But recently, a handful of top-notch producers have begun making tiny quantities of a radically different kind of White Zinfandel. Completely dry, it’s been winning over even the snootiest sommeliers. Try one from Mauritson ($17), Broc Cellars ($22) or red Zinfandel specialist Turley ($20).
