Ruby red, dense, highly extracted pigment. Prune and black licorice notes in nose. Raspberry, menthol-mint and cola flavors initially. After 30 minutes, heavy skin astringency emerges. Decant for two hours. Cherry, plum, soy flavors emerge later.

Ruby red, moderately extracted, dense. Intensely prune note in nose with some briar character. Syrupy, figgy, pruney overripe character, intense flavors, saline tartness and moderate skin astringency in finish. Needs time to open. Cola flavor emerges with time. Plenty of tannins to age this longer

Zin blend? Ok. Drinkable. Nice ruby red. Raspberry and cacao aroma. More juicy than jammy. Brambly fruit with earthy herbal spice on finish. Solid tannins.
