$9 Target // very nice mouthfeel, a hint of raw vegetable, very jammy and a touch of pepper. Very good wine especially for the price.

Great cheap zin. If you are in a lush mood... this is a solid choice.

Smoky blackberry jam, hints of toasted oak and allspice. Well balanced with firm tannins and not too sweet as some Zins are. Paired perfectly with roasted rosemary/smoked paprika chicken and potatoes! ($8) [11/21/16]

Sight: pretty thin, maroon to deep reddish purple
Smell: vanilla, cinnamon, new leather, blackberry, raisin
Taste: good body, medium tannin, sweet tobacco, strawberry nutmeg, hickory, sage, blueberry strawberry jam
Opinion: for the price this was a great Zin. Much better than I thought it would be, and great for dinner pairings.

15/20 (86/100)

В целом вполне неплохо, чуть суховато, дымно, ягодно, насыщенно.
