Dark and fruit forward. Good acidity that reminded me of drinking bottles in Spain

I thought this was a delicious wine. Something about the length and finish was really enjoyable. Would buy again

This wine took a while to open up, but when it did, it was lovely! On the nose, jammy raspberry, spice, cinnamon, and oak. On the palate very ripe strawberry jam, chocolate, licorice, and a dusty finish.

Intense fruit but not in a bad way. The illustration on the label is a pretty good indicator of what's in the bottle.

Pretty good zin. Bold with dark fruit. Very nice tannins and slight smoke. Slightly acidic, but good.

Tastes like a spicy Pinot noir. I don't find it to be tart. Vanilla and pepper
