Winemakers’ opinion: What foods pair with Zinfandel wine? (video)

I went to the Zinfandel Advocates and Producers Festival in San Francisco with one mission: to find out, once and for all, what food pairs with Zinfandel from the people who make the juice. This grapes is often low in tannins and acidity with a reputation for hefty alcohol… what would these winemakers say? I got the goods from nine winemakers and principals, from producers large and small (but mostly small). The answers might surprise you…
