I knew there was some other reason my favorite wines are Zinfandel’s. Scientist have found compounds in the wine to be a cholesterol fighter. What is even more surprising is the second place grape is Syrah (a.k.a. Shiraz), which is my second favorite followed by Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon. Huge Johnson has a nice digest here; the source material is here.
Zinfandel is good for you!
