Rex Goliath Zinfandel

I bought this wine because it was on sale at Teeter for $5 and I like Zinfandels. Roll the die, right?

It’s going to officially become one of my favorite lower priced Zins. Smooth, jammy and just a little bit of bite at the end. It would be a good wine to have at a party – I think it’d be universally liked and you can’t beat that price point. We happened to pair it with pizza that night but I think it would hold up to some heavy comfort food too, like lasagna or beef stew.

I may have to open a second bottle to find out.

Tasting Notes:

Wine Name: Rex Goliath Zinfandel

Grape: Red, Zinfandel

Origin: California

Price: On sale for $4.99, I think it’s regularly $8.99?

General impression: jammy, smooth, a little tart at the end

Recommendations: a good red for non-red drinkers, pair with pizza or comfort foods, party wine

Would you buy again? Yes. I went back and bought another bottle the next day since it was on sale!



  1. I’m a big fan of R&G Chard, but not the other ones.. the merlot has an almost effervescent feel to it.

    • Now you have me wanting to try the Merlot just for curiousity’s sake! Adding it to my list…

  2. I might have to try this one since it pairs nicely with my favorite food! 😉

    • Yes indeed! Look for it on sale.. can’t beat that price point for a good wine!

  3. I can never find the Zin! I can always find the others, but not that. BOO. You got me hooked.

    • It’s on sale at Teeter right now – if I’m in there this week, I’ll grab you a bottle!
