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.

Looks like earlier vintages disappointed. This 15 is really nice. Wonderful balance. A little light on tannin but super fruit forward. Great fruit flavors. Really bummed they only had one bottle. Now I'm on the lookout!

Very drinkable table wine. Good fruit, bold mouth feel and soft tannins. Will be buying more to serve to holiday guests.

This is very good value for money. To the nose it is loaded with berries, it has a beautiful fruity smell. To the palate, it is low on tannins, round, medium to full bodied, berries, plum. What a pleasant surprise and good deal. I love it when I find deals like this one. Go for it !
