My first zin! Jammy, dark fruits. Hickory, leather, would pair well with pulled pork or ribs. Smells like autumn in Michigan. A fall wine, so I should re-drink it in the fall....too hot for it right now :)

Kudos Gnarly Head; luscious, full body rich in dark fruits and tannins.

I don't know why the pro rating is only 8.1 . This wine is delightful. Berries with a hint of oak.

Very dry, light spiciness, earthy - kinda smoky & that's not really my thing - the Plungerhead 2016 was easier drinking
