The new Bloomingdales opens in Union Square today. I went to the red carpet gala on Tuesday night — which was a hoot, let me tell you: trumpeter Chris Botti, the most beautiful boys SF has to offer, and high society done up in 80s fashion. But anyway, I had some great Zinfandel, which is saying a lot (for me) because it’s not a favorite of mine. I liked the St. Francis Old Vine Zinfandel because it wasn’t Smuckers in a bottle. It was peppery and bold, with darker fruits that felt as if they were smoked on the grill. The Sonoma wine runs about $16 a bottle. Not bad.
