Good for a hearty meal but really more for after, terrific chocolate notes makes me think of pairing with dessert. Very high alcohol, is this a port sailing under the flag of Zin? Wish I had bought more.

Super yummy and mellow. Doesn't taste too jammy and doesn't have that massed produced first taste or smell. Feels like I'm trying it in the tasting room. Slightly spicy and sweet.

Light and fruity Zin. On the nose, blackberry, pomegranate, and heavy alcohol. At first taste, really nice jammy raspberry notes followed by a hint of spice on the back of the throat. Finishes nicely with red pear and sour plum. Overall, not a bad pick for a young wine but it leaves me wanting more depth.

Blackberry and plum. Higher alcohol then I prefer but that's common with Zinfandel. Had with pizza and thought it was really good. (Total Wine)
