Californians Celebrate More than Zin August 31, 2006 Lawmakers in California passed a bill declaring Zinfandel to be the state's "historic wine." Now Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has put a cork in the measure. He said it's not fair to leave out other fine California wines, like Cabernets and Pinot noirs. The bill's author says, "While we were crushed by the veto, the governor will find no sour grapes in our office." And, not missing the chance for another pun, she adds, "Next year we will press on."
