This medium-dark Mendocino Zin sports a playful nose of strawberry and boysenberry with a cinnamon twist. On the palate, raspberry and cherry play off of one another in front of a spicy backdrop. The tannins are smooth. The wine drinks young and breezy.

Really delicious, especially for the price. Great fruit, structure. Nice pepper finish.

Buy all you can find at your local Costco. From front to back - great balance of acid and fruit. STRUCTURE! Not a lazy zin fruit bomb. A steal at $12.99. Could easily go for $40 a bottle.

Prune and pepper nose. Taste reflected the nose. Add some jamminess and you have the prototypical Zin.

This is a smooth Zin, I get light spice on the nose, and a spicy maple syrup in the taste, maybe a hint of raspberry... I'm not eating with this wine, just drinking after a lausunia dinner. Overall I like it very much!
