Deep Ruby with aromas of dark berry fruits and spice for this off-dry Zin. On the palate jammy ripe blackberry and blueberry fruit with rustic spice and a bit of sweetness. Soft tannins, medium finish ending with a spice pepper tang.

Leather and cherries on the nose. Berries forward on the palate. Well balanced tannins. At 3 years old, this was probably too young, and more time in the bottle to develop deeper complexity would benefit the wine. Worth attempting to age, however.
