America's Best Wine Bars
Zin Wine Bar, Healdsburg, CA
Local wines and produce, naturally, are the anchor of this respected restaurant and wine bar in Sonoma wine country. Sample widely among the terroir outside the door; the list of 100 bottles ranges from obscure to common, among them, wonderful Russian River Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Fans of Zinfandel will be particularly pleased by the ample selection of bottles and flights, some sourced from producers in nearby Dry Creek Valley.
Great Match: Try the brined, applewood-smoked pork chop with a glass of 2008 Acorn Zinfandel from nearby Alegría Vineyards, $36 total.
