@Remi Barrett , hells yes. This is a pure gem of a zin. Super bold yet supple fruits. Not spicy at all. So rounded and mouth filling for a zin. Loved this.

Aromatics bright red fruit. Cedar With a bit of Briar Berry. Delcious mouth feel soft of luscious fruit n spice. Lovely finish not long lasting... Elegant for Zinfandel

Surprised by color, very brick, looks like aged cab or Nebbiolo. On the nose raspberry, rose water, little greeness and slight eucalyptus note, palate is silky smooth, just a touch of alcohol lean, nice style
