Now this is a BBW. Big on fruit and bold on flavor this old vine Zin was amazing. A steal at $9 bucks. The blackberry, oak, and spice blended perfectly and it was a pleasure to sip. Like a decadent dessert you'll want to take your time with it and enjoy every drop.

Wanted something to go with (and in) a pot of chili and this specifically mentioned hearty chili on the label, so it was my choice for the evening. Perfect choice. Best pot of chili I’ve ever made, for starters, and the dark, not-too-spicy-or-too-dry flavors of this wine were a perfect complement. I had a glass waiting on the chili to cook and another with dinner, and both were excellent. Will definitely get this again. Highly recommend.
