Four Vines 2003 Zinfandel

Four Vines was one of the exhibitors at the Nantucket Wine Festival.  The vendor (I believe he was the maker of the wines as well) was quite distinctive - he looked like he would be equally at home at a biker rally.  He actually fit the company image quite well.  They are doing things differently than others.  They make a "Naked" Chardonnay that never touches oak (quite good).  The blends are all given very distinctive names ("Anarchy", "Heretic").  They were passing out temporary tattoos.
In any case, one of the wines sampled was their Zinfandel.  This was one of very few that I looked for when I got back.  I've found it at a number of locations, but most recently spotted it at the Cambridge Trader Joe's for only $8.99/bottle (was as high as $11.99 at another location).  They had quite a few cases and were featuring it at the end of one of the aisles.  So run, don't walk, to Trader Joe's and pick up a bottle and give it try.  If you like it, head back and get several more!
