Lean and clean. Nothing jammy about it. Great typicity. You'd never guess it to be at 15.6% abv. So well integrated. Wish more zin producers would embrace this profile.

Delicious. We let this sit for a few years and tonight was a great night to open it,

Chappellet had a nice lineup including this Zin. A little hot to start but opened up nicely after 40-45 minutes. ZOTN in my wood-fired pizza Zin-off.

This is a well rounded zin with layers of flavor and great balance. Can't go wrong with @chappellet_wine! This is what a great zin should be, not a fruit bomb.

A huge zin with fruit that will kick your nose off. Nearing balanced, but too much alcohol at 15.6% to reach it. Still delicious, though.

2012 Zin, green garden salad, homemade meat sauce with pasta and garlic bread. Good now or lay it down to mellow. Nice snap and a good peppery Zin.
