Beautiful Zin, well balanced and supple. I don't say his often about Zin. Coincidentally this wine made it to no. 12 on WS top 100 wines of 2017. Well deserved. WS 93 Pts. Top 10 2017 tasting at NCWC.

Medium purplish red. Dark spices on the nose, bitter cocoa, oak barrel, some animal nuances, light cherries, a touch smoky and crushed gravel. Tight on the tannins (6.5/10) not yet rounded. Complex palate yet tight as well with notes of raw twigs, bramble berries, anise, spices, dried cherries, a touch of alcohol and pepper. Long finish with definite potential to improve once the palate rounds out. Drink till 2024.

Bright purple red in color. Cherry, berry, leather and barrel wood in nose. Raspberry, cherry and black pepper notes in mouth. Tight tannins, needs lots of time to open

Accessible with a short decant. This was drinking quite well.

Early accessibility compared to vineyard designated Bedrocks jumps out here. Juicy and full of red fruit. Has structure but the tannins are softer here. Remains an excellent deal.

Old standby for brisket and latke first night of Chanukah dinner. Popped and poured 5 minutes ago and it’s in desperate need of time or air or both.
