Nose is uneventful with floral notes and clove. Tastes big and jammy just like he average wine buyer likes.

Usually I donโ€™t like Zin but this is pretty delicious. Think of some next level cranberry juice.

Clean and light for a Zin. Fruit forward and lighter body than most Zins.

Fruit bomb - went from cranberry to rhubarb to cherry then turned really jammy & flabby, hints of cocoa, vanilla & white pepper. Not unpleasant but not really a Zin, guess it was just innocuous ...

It is what it is. And that's jammy but not over-ripe fruit slathered with American oak.

A lighter Zin with supple berries, liquorice, spice and a hint of mintiness on the note but a tad bitter on the palate and a short finish.

Spice and vanilla balanced with dark fruitiness and soft tannins with just the right amount of acidity.
