The Collected Wisdom of #ZinZen: Volume IV


When you drink Zinfandel, do not drink aromatics, textures, notes, layers, mouthfeels, or hints of. Just drink Zinfandel.

When angry, count to Zinfandel.

If you have time to be mindful, you have time for Zinfandel.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a Zinfandel. I’ll meet you there.

Do not drink, unless it improves on thirst.

Genius is one percent inspiration, and ninety-nine perfect Zinfandel.

If there is no self, whose Zinfandel is this?

Zin does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while drinking wine. Zin spirituality is just to drink the wine.

The other side of the bottle always has another side.

After enlightenment, the laundry. After the laundry, the Zinfandel.

The palate should be as a mirror.

No Zinfandel ever pours in the wrong place.

The only Zin you find on the tops of mountains is the Zin you bring up there.

Zen: Seeing into one’s own nature. Zin: Decanting into one’s own nature.

The quieter you become, the more you can taste.
