Dark garnet in the glass with herbs, pepper, and fresh cut flowers on the nose. There's also a really pleasant earthy aromas from this big boy. And this is a big boy, indeed. 14.8 Zins scare me because I expect the same old crap but that's not what we get here. More earthiness and a definite rustic nature are present. Phenomenal spice and pretty, red fruit show after decanting. Big, gamey, and just plain fun stuff.
