2014 vintage. Black cherries and spices. Easy drinking, less rustic tannin than the 2013 vintage.

Let it breath a little bit. It starts out dry and kind or boring, but after 10 minutes it opened up and sweetened up a bit with a little fruit. It could easily be an everyday drinker.

Better than I expected! Old vine zin, cab sauv, Syrah and petite sirah! Medium finish, beautiful nose, medium minus tannin. Glad I had it!

I'm not a massive zin fan but this old vine zin red blend makes me rethink my life choices. It's great on the nose, and has a unique oakyness. On the lips the juice unravels to display a slightly dry berryness with heavy cherry and blackberry notes. It lingers for a moment with a light coco flavor and goes dry at the very end.
Bravo.

It's a good $10 bottle for those nights you have guests over that could care less what they drink and you want to drink something decent.

One of the smoothest blends I've had. Used a decanter so it could breathe and it lightened up the taste. Slightly fruity with little tannins. Would definitely get again.
