For blackened, spicy Southern cooking, turn to the Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel.
You could also grab a bottle of sparkling and not at all be wrong or disappointed – but there is something outstanding about this Zin that cozies up to soul food.
The blackened catfish from Tupelo Honey has a spicy roundhouse kick that compliments the Rodney Strong Knotty Vines Zinfandel in the same way Nathaniel Ratecliff and the Night Sweats compliments an evening in sweats with a glass of it. Or three. Which, hypothetically, you may need after an outdoor dining experience with extreme gusts of wind blowing menus, napkins, and your sanity up in the air.
